ACRE advice on oilseed rape


This document is the generic advice ACRE has provided for applications to market herbicide-tolerant oilseed rape for uses excluding cultivation, updated to include MON88302. This advice applies where ACRE considers a GM oilseed rape variety poses no greater risk to human health and the environment than non-GM varieties. ACRE has considered an application for MON88302 oilseed rape and agreed it was appropriate to include it in this advice.
