Great news for farmers this morning—-as South Korea has lifted its temporary suspension on Canadian wheat in that country…
The country’s food ministry says it has NOT found any unapproved genetically modified strains during tests on imports of Canadian wheat or flour.
Sales had been put on hold last week—-after the CFIA announced that 12 wheat plants of an unapproved GM variety had been found along an oil lease road in southern Alberta last year.
Cam Dahl with Cereals Canada says thats great news for wheat producers:
“They have gone through their testing–and are satisfied that Canadian wheat meets their specifications. So we’re definitely moving in the right direction.”
Now we’re just waiting to see what Japan has to say.
