Australia OKs Monsanto's GM cotton lines

The Australian Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) has concluded that Monsanto’s genetically modified insect-resistant Bollgard III and the insect-resistant and glyphosate-tolerant Bollgard III/Roundup Ready Flex cotton pose negligible risks to human health and the environment. Bollgard III combines Bollgard II with Syngenta’s COT102 ( Agrow No 586, p 18). Monsanto plans to test Bollgard III and Bollgard III/Roundup Ready Flex on up to 1,150 ha between October 2010 and October 2014. The OGTR’s risk assessment and risk management plan is open to public comment until June 15th.
