Material type: materialTypeLabelBookAnalytics: Show analyticsPublisher: Mexico, DF (Mexico) CIMMYT : 2003Description: p. 212-213.Subject(s): Crop husbandry | Cytoplasmic male sterility | genetically modified organisms | insect resistance | Maize | Pollen | transgenics | Zea mays AGROVOC | Hybrids AGROVOCDDC classification: 631.53 Summary: The advent of genetically modified (GM) crop varieties has raised great public concern and political debate in many countries. Besides the acceptance of GM products themselves, the dispersal of GM pollen is of major ecological and agronomic interest for the following reasons: (1) contamination of non-GM crop plants on adjacent fields with grave consequences for the product acceptance or the seed purity, (2) vertical gene transfer by GM pollen to related weed spedes, and (3) possible adverse effects of GM pollen on non-target organisms. In the last few years, a considerable number of GM maize (Zea mays L.) and rapeseed/ canola (Brassica napus L.) varieties have been released worldwide. Both crops produce large amounts of pollen which can be transported over long distances by wind or insects.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
