APP: 204212 Staff report on the recommendation to the EPA reassessment committee. (02.09.21)
GE Free reassessment of ERMA200223 (12.3.21) GE Free reassessment highlights the failed outcomes and the inhumane sterile results of genetic engineering (GE) that include transgenic and genome deletion/insertion technologies on the cows and goats. GE Free is calling for the reassessment of the AgResearch experiments. GE Free NZ has through OIA and Annual reports been able to detail the poor outcomes.
