BASF to grow Amflora in Germany/Sweden

BASF is to grow its genetically modified Amflora amylopectin potato variety in Germany and Sweden this year. The company has allocated a 2 ha site in Uplingen (Saxony- Anhalt, Germany) and an unidentifed site in Sweden. This year’s plantings are for seed multiplication purposes for cultivation in subsequent years. “Stringent quality requirements” have been enforced for the seed stock, BASF notes. Plantings of Amflora in Sweden last year were found to have been contaminated with the unauthorised Amadea GM potato variety ( Agrow No 601, p40). The company expects a commercial launch for Amflora in 2013/14 ( Agrow No 599, p 23).
