GM canola bans end in Australia

The moratorium on the cultivation of genetically modified canola was lifted in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) this month. The move follows similar action in Victoria in February after the states accepted the recommendations of independent review panels to end the bans (Agrow No 533, p 18). "This is a new era of choice for the state's farmers, although strict requirements will remain in place," says NSW Primary Industries Minister Ian Macdonald. There will be a limited amount of GM canola seed available this season. However, there will be close liaison between industry and government to ensure that its introduction is consistent with state legislation, Mr Macdonald notes.
