Nuseed seeks Australian OK for GM DHA canola

Nufarm’s seed subsidiary, Nuseed, has applied to the Australian Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) to commercialise genetically modified canola producing long chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, predominantly docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), in the seed oil. The canola contains seven introduced genes involved in fatty acid biosynthesis from yeasts and marine microalgae. The genes encode enzymes that help DHA canola accumulate a high proportion of DHA relative to other fatty acids. The canola also contains a marker gene conferring tolerance to the herbicide, glufosinate-ammonium. DHA canola is seen as an alternative source of DHA, which is primarily obtained from fish and algae. The OGTR expects to issue a risk assessment and management plan on the application in October.
