The following is an excerpt.
Tasmania’s dairy farmers are warning the state’s ban on genetically-modified organisms, or GMO’s, could disadvantage the sector over the next few years.
The Tasmanian moratorium on GMO’s was extended five years ago.
It’s due to expire next year, and will be put up for review in the next few months.
Paul Bennett from Dairy Tasmania has warned against another blanket ban on GMO’s.
He says researchers interstate have developed high-energy grazing grasses, and Tasmanian dairy farmers will be the only ones in the country who can’t access the fodder if the ban on GMOs is extended.
