AUSTRALIA: GM GRASS FOR DAIRY COWS SPARKS CONCERN

GE Plants and Crops

SUMMARY: "A plan to feed Australian dairy cows genetically modified rye grass designed to boost milk production has sparked concerns from both organic and non-organic farmers."

A plan to feed Australian dairy cows genetically modified rye grass designed to boost milk production has sparked concerns from both organic and non-organic farmers.

Opponents of the scheme fear that GM grasses could contaminate neighbouring properties and that existing labelling requirements would not allow consumers to identify products made from cows fed on the modified rye.

USA: LOOPHOLE TO AVOID REGULATION OF GENETICALLY MODIFIED GRASS

ORGANIC MUTAGENIC/CELL FUSION HYBRID SEEDS ARE GENETICALLY ENGINEERED

SUMMARY: "It is spring planting time for farms, and, if hybrid seeds are being planted, chances are some might be genetically engineered (GE) and technically genetically modified organisms (GMOs), according to a growing movement in organic agriculture."

CANADA: QUEBEC FARMERS OPPOSE RELEASE OF GM ALFALFA

GE Plants and Crops

SUMMARY: "A tiny, genetically modified seed is pitting Quebec farmers against the biotech industry."

A tiny, genetically modified seed is pitting Quebec farmers against the biotech industry.

A GM version of alfalfa, a staple in livestock feed, was supposed to be launched in Canada this year. The product, produced with technology by Monsanto, the world’s largest seed-and-chemical company, has already been approved by the federal government. But after protests across the country, farmers learned in March that the controversial seed won’t be here for at least another year.

USA: MORE THAN 3/4 OF SOYBEANS, CORN AND COTTON GROWN IN U.S. ARE GE

GE Plants and Crops

SUMMARY: "New agricultural figures out of Washington show that genetically engineered crops now overwhelmingly dominate the yields of America’s production of soybeans, corn and cotton. But the industry’s embrace of what critics call “frankencrops” has already started to backfire for at least one of these staples."
