Description

"Field trial with transgenic oranges over-expressing a flowering-time gene from Arabidopsis thaliana to investigate possible modification of growth and development. [...] Field trial with transgenic oranges over-expressing flowering meristem identity genes from A. thaliana to investigate: - Possible modification of tree growth due to profuse flowering. - Possible modification of flower and fruit development. - Fruit quality characteristics of fruits from AP1-sweet orange trees." (JRC 2008)
"Pollen dispersal frequency is being assessed annually since 2001 in a transgenic field trial authorized in 1997 (notification B/ES/96/15)." (JRC 2008)
