Effectiveness of border areas in confining the spread of transgenic Brassica napus pollen

Effectiveness of border areas in confining the spread of transgenic Brassica napus pollen

Canadian Journal of Plant Science 80(3): 521-526

The development of transgenic B. napus cultivars requires field trials in agricultural settings. For field testing of transgenic constructs that have not been granted full environmental release, current Canadian Government regulations require either large isolation zones (200 m) or 10 m wide borders of synchronously flowering, non-transgenic B. napus to contain transgenic pollen.
