Western Australia to get better GM crop research


Western Australia will soon have some new facilities for genetically-modified crop research after a $9 million funding commitment in yesterdays State Budget.

Two climate simulator facilities will be built in the wheatbelt with the aim of improving crop genetics to help tackle things like frost and drought.

WA Agriculture Minister Terry Redman says hes not concerned about getting complaints from anti-GM lobbyists.

"Theres a whole heap of farmers out there in Western Australia who are absolutely impressed with the decision we made around GM in this state," he says.

"Im sure they are going to welcome the day that we look at resourcing research and development to make them competitive in what is a challenging international market."
