Australian state keeps GM crop ban

The Australian state of Tasmania has extended its moratorium on the planting of genetically modified crops for another five years until November 30th 2014. The state’s “GMO-free status” is vital for Tasmania’s growers to meet demands for non-GM food, according to the Minister for Primary Industries and Water, David Llewellyn. The decision by some other Australian states to relax their bans has “increased the value of Tasmania’s GMO-free status” and created greater market opportunities, he adds. Western Australia recently lifted its ban on GM cotton cultivation ( Agrow No 556, p 18) and New South Wales and Victoria allowed GM canola production to proceed this year ( Agrow No 540, p 19).
