A report commissioned by the state government has found the moratorium on the use of genetically-modified crops has cost canola growers as much as $33-million across the past 15 years.

The Independent Review of the South Australian GM Food Crop Moratorium, conducted by agriculture policy analyst Kym Anderson, also rejected claims previously made by the former Labor government and anti-GM advocates that SA grain attracted a price premium due to the GM crop moratorium.

Primary Industries and Regional Development Minister Tim Whetstone said the government would consider Prof Anderson's report and its 19 findings before making a decision on the future of the moratorium, which is currently due to expire in 2025.
