Analysis of price premiums under the South Australian GM moratorium

This report provides clear facts and evidence that the moratorium on genetically modified (GM) crops in South Australia does not deliver price premiums to any farmer in the state and if repealed, would not cause any loss to non-GM farmers.

This report has been independently produced by Mecardo, under commission from Grain Producers South Australia (GPSA) and the Agricultural Biotechnology Council of Australia (ABCA).
