Cotton & Management of the Tobacco Budworm-Bollworm Complex
by D.D. Hardee, J.W. Van
Duyn, M.B. Layton, and R.D. Bagwell
Bt cotton technology
was developed to counteract the increasing resistance of insects to
traditional pesticides and the increasing cost of using them. This publication
explains how Bt cotton is developed, how it controls insect
pests, how it can most effectively be used in insect pest management,
and the restrictions and limitations on its use. This publication was
created for research entomologists, extension workers, consultants in
pest control and cotton production, and cotton producers. Color, 38
