Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Bt resistant rootworm spreads
Institute for Science in Society - 10/31/2011.
By Dr Eva Sirinathsinghji – Bt is a toxin from the soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, which produces a large family of similar proteins that target different insect pests; and quite a few of them have been incorporated in genetically modified crops to act as ‘biopesticides’.
