Abstract Auxinic herbicides (e.g. dicamba) are extensively used in agriculture to selectively control broadleaf weeds.

PLOS 04/11/15 Transfer of Dicamba Tolerance from Sinapis arvensis to Brassica napus via Embryo Rescue and Recurrent Backcross Breeding

Although cultivated species of Brassicaceae (e.g. Canola) are susceptible to auxinic herbicides, some biotypes of Sinapis arvensis (wild mustard) were found dicamba resistant in Canada. In this research, dicamba tolerance from wild mustard was introgressed into canola through embryo rescue followed by conventional breeding.

Intergeneric hybrids between S. arvensis (2n = 18) and B. napus (2n = 38) were produced through embryo rescue.

ROTHAMSTED_AC_UK 07/07/15 The first GM oilseed crop to produce omega-3 fish oils in the field.

In a landmark paper published today in the journal Metabolic Engineering Communications, scientists at Rothamsted Research have announced the first year results of the field-scale trial of Camelina oilseed plants genetically engineered to make omega-3 fish oils in their seeds.

ROTHAMSTED_AC_UK 07/07/15 The first GM oilseed crop to produce omega-3 fish oils in the field

Omega-3 fish oils specifically long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 LC-PUFA) eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are acknowledged by the medical community to be beneficial components of the human diet. The primary dietary sources of EPA & DHA are marine fish, either wild or farmed (aquaculture). Although some types of omega-3 fats are available from other sources in the human diet (such as flax seeds), the nutritionally-beneficial omega- 3 LC- PUFA EPA & DHA are only available from marine sources. Fish, like humans, accumulate the omega-3 fish oils by feeding on other organisms in the marine food chain or, in the case of farmed fish, through fishmeal and fish oil in feed.

WEEKLY TIMES 06/03/14 A new survey of farmers discovers significant environmental benefits to GM canola

Source: WeeklyTimesNow GROWING genetically modified canola significantly reduces farmers’ environmental footprints, according to a new survey. The research also found problem weeds and the growing issue of herbicide resistance were the main reasons farmers were adopting the technology. The survey of 1348 farmers from 2008 to 2010 was summarised at Birchip Cropping Group’s annual trial review day last week in Birchip and will be officially released tomorrow. The research was commissioned by BCG and the Grains Research and Development Corporation to assess the agronomic, environmental and economic impact of GM canola on farmers. SGA Solutions consultant David Hudson coordinated the survey, which interviewed Victorian and NSW farmers who grew canola.

Organic farmer Steve Marsh has lost his court case against neighbour Michael Baxter over GM crop contamination.

WA TODAY (AU) 28/05/14 WA organic farmer loses genetically modified canola fight in court

Photo: Robert Gunstone In a landmark court decision, a judge has ruled against a West Australian organic farmer who was suing his neighbour for allegedly contaminating his farm with genetically modified canola. Steve Marsh was suing former friend Michael Baxter in the WA Supreme Court, claiming he lost organic certification for more than half of his farm after GM canola drifted onto his land from Mr Baxter's property. In 2010, Mr Marsh's Kojonup oats, rye and sheep farming property, southeast of Perth, was certified organic by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia.

But he alleged GM canola blew 1.5 kilometres inside his fence, which caused him to lose his certification. Advertisement Mr Baxter claimed when he planted the GM canola, he followed all regulations on buffer zones and notified his neighbours.

GENETIC LITERACY PROJECT 18/06/14 Sales of GM canola seed increase in Australia. FOODMAG 15/01/14 Lacklustre growth of GM canola in Australia. Five years after the lifting of Australia’s GM crop moratorium, the acceptance of genetically modified canola remains lacklustre, with genetically modified canola representing just nine percent of the most recent crop.

FOODMAG 15/01/14 Lacklustre growth of GM canola in Australia

This is unlike Canada, which has embraced GM canola varieties since their release in 1995, with GM yields representing 55 percent of the total crop just five years after their introduction. According to weeklytimesnow, uptake of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready canola has been stagnant since it was approved in 2009 for Victoria and NSW and in 2010 for Western Australia. Monsanto technology development manager, Tony May, said Australia's slower uptake was because there was a greater herbicide resistance problem, particularly in Western Australia, so growers made decisions based on agronomic factors.

BLOG BIOTECH/PHARMACEUTICALS 24/01/11 Global Use of GM Canola and Other Minor Biotechnology Crops

Maize (corn), cotton and soybean constitute the vast majority of GM planting, but there are a number of less widely grown or emerging GM crops including canola, papaya, sugarbeet and a variety of vegetable crops. GM canola is grown in Australia Canola is a form of rapeseed grown principally to provide livestock feed and to produce oil for human consumption. GM canola was grown in the US, Canada, Chile and Australia during 2009. Genetically modified strains of canola include Bayer Cropscience’s InVigor hybrid, which is tolerant to the herbicide glufosinate ammonium, and Monsanto’s RoundupReady canola. GM Sugar Beet may have environmental benefits Genetically modified herbicide resistant sugar beet is currently only grown in the US and Canada.

NON GM REPORT 01/05/11 GM canola is herbicide-resistant weed in California

Genetically modified Roundup Ready canola is not widely grown in California, but it is growing widely as an herbicide-resistant weed. A recent article in Western Farm Press described how GM canola escaped field trials in 2007 and farmers’ fields and spread to farms, roadsides, and highways. SCIENCE20 08/10/11 Migrating Genetically Modified Canola Found In North Dakota. Canola, a specific edible type of rapeseed developed in the 1970s, contains about 40 percent oil and became popular as a substitute for traditional cooking oils.

SCIENCE20 08/10/11 Migrating Genetically Modified Canola Found In North Dakota

The name is derived as “Can” (for Canada) and “ola” (for oil low acid) and Canola oil is the lowest in saturated fats of all commonly used oils. While much is imported, North Dakota leads the U.S. in canola, approximately 92 percent of domestic production. Canola has been one of numerous genetic modification success stories but GMOS have been scrutinized far more extensively than the science claiming saturated fats were dangerous, which led to the development of Canola in the first place.

CRIKEY 30/09/11 GM canola — is anyone buying it? Grain traders and the WA government are refusing to divulge how much of the genetically modified canola grown in WA last year has been sold, amid reports that sales have been sluggish. While AWB claims the lack of market interest is due to low oil content and the poor finish to the growing season — and not the GM factor — non-GM canola varieties are fetching up to $50 per tonne more than GM canola.

While Hansard reveals that WA Minister for Agriculture Terry Redman told parliament that grain traders advised the Department of Agriculture and Food that a significant proportion of the 49,000 tonnes of GM canola grown last year had sold, exactly how much remains unsold, sitting in silos, has proved difficult to uncover. AWB’s current GM canola market price is $535 per tonne, equating to over $26 million for the whole crop. “The grain traders have declined to release any additional information because release of the additional information may affect marketing negotiations,” Redman said.
