GM crops threaten Australia’s independence to determine what will grow and where. A few global companies will control the supply chain of food supply. On a Landline programme last year they identified that in the USA farmers regret having used GM because it did not deliver consistent yields and their land is now contaminated. The case currently before the Australian High Court instituted by Safe Food Australia highlights that non GM farmers will pay GM farmers for contaminating their crops if they leave non GM residual grain in a silo. This is related to Canola. Surely Australian scientists can produce wheat varieties as they have in the past where global companies do not control the supply chain and the intellectual property. The growth of GM foods is largely in Africa because the global companies have ready access. The UK and EU do not want GM.
