Five-year trials into GM-crop alternative for salmon feed

(05/14/19)

UK agriculture science centre Rothamsted Research has been given permission to run a five-year series of trials using genetically modified camelina plants that could provide an alternative to marine ingredients in salmon feed.

The successful application to the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) follows previous GM camelina trials carried out last year by Rothamsted across two sites in Hertfordshire and Suffolk, which is where the new trials must also be carried out.

The first part of the proposed research will determine performance in the field, and the seed oil yield, of transgenic...................................................
