lowered glucosinolate content, herbicide tolerance (glufosinate)
An isolation distance of 400 m to other commercial oilseed rape cultures as well as a non-transgenic border (pollen trap) of 6 m will be guaranteed to reduce gene flow. Also cleaning of the seed drill before and after sowing will be done. The seeds will be harvested before complete maturity. Wild relatives near the release site will be destroyed as well as the vegetative material at the end of the experiment. Destruction of shed seed by herbicide or shallow cultivation.
The field sites will be monitored during 2 years with the destruction of volunteer oilseed rape and wild relatives.
