Environmental risks of fungus resistant GM oilseed rape

In a Norwegian context, the cultivation of oilseed rape (OSR; Brassica napus and Brassica rapa) is limited and challenged by geography, climate, insects and fungus-related pathogens.

Quantitatively, the cultivation of OSR in Norway is rather small when compared to the yearly production and cultivation in Europe. In Norway, OSR is mainly used in feed (animals and fish) and there is also interest in its use as “local biomass” for the production of biofuels. The production in Norway is, however, too small to satisfy domestic demand, thus, much of the OSR used today is imported.
