Submission for the Review of the South Australian GM Food Crop Moratorium

October 25, 2018

Livestock SA welcomes the independent review of South Australia’s moratorium on the cultivation of genetically modified food crops. Livestock SA is the peak body for sheep, beef cattle and goat producers in this State with approximately 3,500 members. Many of these producers are also grain growers and are directly affected by the current moratorium. The current South Australian GM food crop moratorium supposedly exists for trade and market access purposes. There does not appear to be any evidence of any market benefits from this moratorium. Livestock SA recommends that the moratorium be immediately lifted.
