Bt 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 pp.
