A SURVEY OF ROADSIDE FUGITIVE GM (ROUNDUP READY) CANOLA PLANTS AT WILLIAMS, WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Conservation Council (WA) Citizen Science Program

There are general public concerns about the food-safety implications of genetically modified crops. Within the Western Australian community the concerns relate specifically to the loss of the state’s unique GM-free and organic markets for Canola with the probable uncontrollable spread of the GM genotype over time. There are also ecological issues related to the potential for Roundup resistance to be acquired by the hybridization of GM Canola Brassica napus with other already invasive Brassicaceae such as B. rappa and Raphanus raphanistrum.
The survey further demonstrates the implausibility of the State Government’s stated objectives of segregating of GM and non GM Canola crops / products.
