Posted on: Fri 13 Dec 2019

The South Australian Parliament has rejected the second bid to lift the ban on growing genetically modified crops in the state.

Professor Matthew Tucker, Deputy Director of Waite Research Institute at the University of Adelaide, joins Breakfast’s studio to discuss the repercussions of the ban on the South Australian agriculture sector.
