Experimental release of genetically modified winter wheat strains
Purpose: Investigation into yield increase in genetically modified winter wheat in field trials, as well as susceptibility to diseases and pests.
Experimental release of cisgenic apple trees
Purpose: Investigation of cisgenic apple trees under field conditions and comparison of morphological and physiological parameters with control plants.
Experimental release of genetically modified potato strains
Purpose: Investigation of the efficacy of various inserted Rpi genes, alone or in combination, against late blight; of the phenotypic properties of the genetically modified potato strains; and of biosafety aspects.
