The Minute: Uncovering Bt Trait Escapes And Cotton Bollworms

Cotton bollworms feed on the reproductive anatomy of cotton, causing hefty damage to the plant and the grower’s bottom line.

Angus explains how Bt trait escapes in corn are driving increased bollworm prevalence in cotton fields throughout the Mid-South and how growers can use diamide chemistries to control eggs and help remedy this issue.
