Management of European Corn Borer/Anthracnose Stalk Rot Pest Complex with Transgenic Bt Corn Hybrids for Silage Production
Bergstrom, Gary C.; Waldron, J. Keith; Shields, Elson J.
Recent advancements in biotechnology have lead to the development of transgenic corn hybrids which express insecticidal toxins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Bt hybrids are an attractive pest management tool due to their pest specificity, environmental and mammalian safety and potential for season long control. This research tested feasibility of deploying transgenic (insect resistant) corn hybrids in New York for management of European corn borer.
