Anti-GM map inaccurate

Disappointingly, t he map contains outdated information that misrepresents Australian agriculture ‘s use and location of GM crops.

Coupled with the implementation of Integrated Pest Management techniques, the growing of GM cotton has seen us reduce our use ofsynthetic insecticides by 95%.

Cotton Australia encourages anyone wanting to learn about GM cotton to visit the Cotton Australia websi te -co ttonaustralia.com.au/fact-sheet.
