Citizens’ Science Survey finds GM canola – Albany, WA
September 20, 2011
Western Australia’s Conservation Council backs a “Citizen Science Survey”. It finds fugitive canola plants growing on the edges of major roads in the Esperance region and demonstrates that road transport can spread genetically modified plants over vast areas. 2% of fugitive plants were found to be genetically modified, despite GM crops making up less than 8% of the 2011 harvest.
