Anti-GMO Camp in Canada Breathes Sigh of Relief

Canadian wheat farmers and opponents of genetically modified crops are breathing a sigh of relief due to an announcement by Canada’s National Research Council (NRC) that it does not plan to research genetically modified organisms (GMO) wheat.

The government agency said in a statement that developing GMO wheat is will not be one of its objectives, “We will be developing a number of tools that will be used to reduce the breeding cycle, increase yield, and adapt to climate stresses. GMO varieties are not contemplated at this time.”
