Farmer attitude to GM crops Biotechnology Australia’s survey released today on farmer attitudes to GM crops reinforces the importance of giving farmers managed access to GM canola in 2004.
‘This survey of farmer opinion clearly shows that growers have questions that can only be answered by giving them the opportunity to see GM canola in the ground. Our international competitors are enjoying agronomic, economic and environmental benefits from GM canola. These benefits are making GM varieties the first choice for Canadian canola farmers. Australian farmers have not been able to try GM canola and we are not surprised that some Australian farmers want to see it for themselves before they make up their minds;’ said Mr Claude Gauchat, Executive Director of Avcare.
