South Africa OKs GM grapevine trials

South Africa has approved field trials of genetically modified disease-resistant grapevines, the national newspaper, the Cape Times, reports. The researchers say that the use of the crop would lead to lower pesticide use. The trials are to take place at the South African Stellenbosch University. Environmentalist groups reportedly claim that there is widespread opposition to the trials. South Africa has grown GM cotton, maize and soybeans since 1998 ( Agrow No 562, pp 12-13).
