Oxitec's Olive Fly Strain Could Become First GM Insect to Undergo Field Evaluation in the EU
Date:9/4/2013

he olive fly is a chemical which has been banned in some countries. Nothing else is effective. In my view the use of GM insects to eradicate this pest is a necessary step towards achieving zero pesticide use."

"European agriculture is facing some severe challenges," said Hadyn Parry, Oxitec Chief Executive. "The burden of agricultural pests is ever present while the number of control approaches is shrinking in the face of insecticide resistance and de-registration of existing chemical treatments. To survive and prosper, European farming will need to evaluate and embrace new solutions and new technologies which are effective, sustainable and safe. If approved, this evaluation will be an important step to bringing an exciting new approach to the farmers who need it."
