Planta. 2018 Jul;248(1):211-219. Development of glyphosate-resistant alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) upon transformation with the GR79Ms gene encoding 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase. CONGRESSIONAL RESEARCH SERVICE 10/09/12 Deregulating Genetically Engineered Alfalfa and Sugar Beets: Legal and Administrative Responses. BETTER FARMING 01/04/16 Glyphosate-tolerant alfalfa debuts in Eastern Canada. By SUSAN MANN Genetically modified alfalfa seeds are going in the ground this spring in Eastern Canada but opposition groups plan to continue their fight against the product.
Forage Genetics International says in a March news release it plans to sell its glyphosate tolerant seed product that also includes another trait that reduces the amount of lignin in the plant. Lignin is a structural component of alfalfa plants that holds them upright, the company’s release says. Reducing lignin should make the genetically modified alfalfa more digestible for cattle and dairy cows.
Only a limited amount of seed (enough to plant less than 5,000 acres of hay) was available in Eastern Canada this spring and the product is not yet available in Western Canada, the release says. Furthermore, Canadian growers are required to keep hay produced from the genetically modified alfalfa in Canada. There was just a limited amount of seed available, “which is why the acres are limited for this season,” he notes.

APHIS USDA 15/12/10 Roundup Ready® Alfalfa Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) APHIS USDA - MAI 2005 - Return to Regulated Status of Alfalfa Genetically Engineered for Tolerance to the Herbicide Glyphosate. United States Patent Application 20090282497 12/11/09 Glyphosate tolerant alfalfa events and methods for detection thereof. This application claims benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/443,997, filed Jan. 31, 2003, the entire contents of which are incorporated by reference herein.
The present invention relates to the field of plant molecular biology, more specifically the invention relates to transgenic glyphosate tolerance in an alfalfa plant. The invention more specifically relates to glyphosate tolerant alfalfa events J-101 and J-163 and to assays for detecting the presence of glyphosate tolerant alfalfa DNA in a plant extract. Alfalfa is an important animal forage crop in many areas of the world. The methods of biotechnology have been applied to alfalfa for improvement of the agronomic traits and the quality of the product. One such agronomic trait important in alfalfa production is herbicide tolerance, in particular, tolerance to glyphosate herbicide. N-phosphonomethylglycine, also known as glyphosate, is a well-known herbicide that has activity on a broad spectrum of plant species. FIG. 1.

The following comments concern the potential deregulation of Monsanto’s genetically engineered alfalfa. They are provided by Jim Munsch, a certified organic beef farmer and The Cornucopia Institute’s key advisor on this important issue. We are posting these as an aide to others still composing comments to the USDA and for those who seek to know more about this issue that is so critical to organic and conventional farmers. Comments on Draft Environmental Impact Statement Glyphosate-Tolerant Alfalfa Docket No. APHIS-2007-0044 We own and operate Deer Run Farm, a certified organic beef-producing farm. This is a grass and forage based cow/calf to finished beef operation.
It has been certified organic since 1999. As an organic animal farmer I have easily co-existed with neighbors choosing to use genetically engineered (GE) corn and soybeans and the industry that supports them. I was hoping that a strong strategy for containing contamination would evolve but it has not. Genetic Contamination 1.
