Abstract

COGEM has commissioned a research project on the effect of the possible future climate change on the occurrence of volunteers. One of the aspects that is considered in the risk assessment of GM crops is whether this crop is able to survive and/or establish in the Netherlands. Climate change could possibly facilitate the survival of a conventional or GM crop. This research project was carried out to investigate whether the survival of maize, potato and sugar beet could change as a result of future climate change in order to allow a timely adjustment of COGEM’s advices if needed.
