The overall objective of the demonstration project is to promote "Familiarization with and acceptance" of crops incorporating Transgenic Technology.
As such, its emphasis is on workshops, demonstration sites, field days and publications. However, a certain amount of agronomic information must be generated. The examination of the technical viability of transgenic hybrid and transgenic herbicide tolerant oilseed rape will be studied as a case study. This will include:
- agronomic trials comparing transgenic and non-transgenic characteristics;
- to demonstrate, communicate and disseminate agronomic practices to farmers
and direct interest groups;
- to evaluate, demonstrate and communicate feed quality of products derived
from transgenic crops to the agro-industry, public agencies and public
interest groups. The rapeseed meal and oil will be analyzed through animal
feeding trials and oil quality analyses.
The combination of all the above mentioned studies will ensure that the target audience will satisfy themselves of all issues concerning transgenic crops.
