GMWatch: “Gene editing has been hyped as a way to bring products with attractive traits to market much more speedily. But so far very few products have emerged from the gene editing pipe line and those that have don’t seem to tally with the industry narrative.
Calyxt’s gene-edited soybean, for instance, has suffered poor farmer take-up, according to an article in the US-based investment magazine Seeking Alpha, reporting in December 2020.” MORE

“New challenges arise in risk assessment when genetically engineered (GE) plants can persist and propagate in the environment as well as produce viable offspring. Next generation effects can be influenced by heterogeneous genetic backgrounds and unexpected effects can be triggered in interaction with environmental conditions. Consequently, the biological characteristics of the original events cannot be regarded as sufficient to conclude on hazards that may emerge in following generations. Potential hazards identified by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) include exacerbating weed problems, displacement and even extinction of native plant species.”

Nu de oude site van De Gentechvrije Burgers bijna verdwijnt, verlenen wij ook weer gastvrijheid aan Stichting Ekopark door de webstek die daar over gaat, uit te breiden. Wij hebben samen immers al zo vaak samengewerkt! Studenten en leerlingen kunnen voor vragen over gentech(vrij) terecht op die wenstek. Let op, de webstek is nog in opbouw!
General description of the product (a) Name of the recipient or parental plant and the intended function of the genetic modification SYHT0H2 soybean is a genetically modified soybean that is produced by Agrobacterium tumefaciens–mediated transformation. Where cultivated, the intended function of the genetic modification of SYHT0H2 soybean is to facilitate the control of weeds by providing tolerance to HPPD-inhibiting herbicides, such as mesotrione, and to herbicides containing glufosinate ammonium.
Quote: “Two important new papers have been published (see abstracts below this article) showing that the GM herbicide-tolerant soybean crops assessed by regulators are not representative of what actually gets grown and put out into the marketplace.“
