GM canola trial in Western Australia
In 2009, twenty Western Australia growers will participate in a trial of
1,000 Ha of genetically modified canola.
The canola has been modified to be resistant to Monsanto''s Round Up
herbicide. WA Agriculture Minister Terry Redman says the locations and distances
to non-GM crops have not yet been decided. The Department of Agriculture and
Food and private grain handler Cooperative Bulk Handling (CBH) will control the
growing and transporting trial.
