Feedback is being sought on a proposed recommendation to lift the moratorium on growing GM Food Crops in all parts of the state, except Kangaroo Island.
The recommendation to lift the moratorium follows an independent review undertaken in late 2018, and the subsequent report released in February this year.
Under this proposal, South Australian producers on the mainland will have the opportunity to choose to grow GM food crops as part of their farming practice. Kangaroo Island is proposed to be excluded from this change and retain the moratorium to maintain its non-GM status.
As part of the public consultation process, public meetings will be held and South Australians will have the opportunity to provide written feedback on the proposed changes.

Written submissions must be received no later than 5pm on 30 September 2019
