Through the creation and sharing of research and knowledge, ABCA's work aims to place biotechnology and gene technology into context as another invaluable innovation for Australian agriculture, ensuring that science guides public policy for the future of farming.UK-based company PG Economics has released its annual report on the impact of GM crops, including economic and environmental benefits for the Australian grains industry... GM wheat was said to be a decade away at the recent Pastoralists and Graziers' Association (PGA) convention in Perth, but industry is laying the groundwork to introduce this technology when the market is ready... Multiple genes must be disabled to modify a trait...

GM crop impacts large and significant: study.. A recent study funded by the German Government and the European Union found the average agronomic and economic benefits of GM crops to be large and significant... "Now that we have the gene, we can actually use that gene sequence to temporarily silence the gene and make rye and other chromosomes pair with wheat," researcher Professor Kulvinder Gill says...

Mr Marsh launched legal action against Mr Baxter in 2012, after he found GM canola on his property in 2010 that resulted in him being de-certified by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia (NASAA) and NASAA's subsidiary certifying organisation NASAA Certified Organic (NCO)... About 70 per cent of the Marsh farm was de-certified by NCO (for almost two years) and, as a result, Mr Marsh was no longer able to market his cereal crops and meat (lamb) as organic... The evidence presented by both sides at the trial was that GM canola swathes were physically harmless to persons, animals or land, even if consumed, and that the GM canola only posed a risk of transferring genetic material if a canola seed germinated in the soil on the Marsh farm (as a volunteer canola plant) and then later cross-fertilised through its pollen being exchanged with another compatible species...

An Oregon State University scientist notified the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) in May that some wheat volunteers found in a field were GM herbicide tolerant... The last field trials of the GM wheat in Oregon occurred in 2001, and there were no field trials on the farm where the GM wheat was found... That's about 50 per cent more than what we currently produce," Ms Watkins said...

Indian biotech develops GM crops.. A series of GM varieties of wheat and rice are under development by Indian plant breeding company Mahyco (the Maharashtra Hybrid Seed Company) in which the US-based Monsanto holds a 26-per-cent stake... The newspaper stated that Mahyco was developing GM wheat and rice with traits that lift yields and build in increased drought, salinity and pest tolerance...

The Gene SceneStudy explores the non-GM market.. A study to develop a model protocol which "would allow market acceptance of non-GM grain from a dedicated non-GM area" has been undertaken in South Australia"s Eyre Peninsula region... A protocol managing the elements of risk was then developed comprising measures for excluding GM products from the area, monitoring for the presence of GM content and containment of any such content should it arise in the area...

A gene activation screen to identify genes that can induce rust resistance... The outputs of the project represent major stepping stones within the long term vision to rust proof Australian wheat crops through conventional pyramiding of rust resistance genes made more efficient using molecular markers and using GM wheat with insertion cassettes of multiple cloned or synthetic rust resistance genes... The system is also applicable to other characters of interest including abiotic stress...
