Host organism: Brassica napus (Oilseed rape)

controlled cell division, herbicide tolerance (glufosinate)

Project title: 
Field evaluation of transgenic oilseed rape with controlled cell division
Plant Genetic Systems
Year(s) of release: 
Effective year(s) of release: 
Period of release: 
Spring oilseed rape: April-October Winter oilseed rape: August-September
Afsnee (PGS farm)
Number of sites: 
Total surface: 
270 m2
Containment measures: 

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 flux. 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.

Monitoring measures: 

Follow up of field during 2 years: destruction of volunteers and wild relatives.
