Insecticide-resistance is a genetic decline in a pest inhabitant’s exposure to a pesticide, the inheritances are transferred from one generation to other generation. Crops that have been genetically engineered for Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) resistance could significantly lower production costs and grant farmers with new insect control ways within the upcoming years. The success of commercialization depends on several factors, including patent issues, regulatory climate, and the capability of scientists to deal with targeted insects.
While vast swatches of north Alabama had subpar-to-disastrous dry land corn and soybean yields, most cotton growers were harvesting one of their best cotton crops. Read moreRead More »
“We conducted 30-year simulations based on realistic, but conservative, assumptions and found that aquatic communities are unlikely to be at risk from acute or chronic exposures to registered uses of imidacloprid,” said Dr. Dwayne Moore Read moreRead More »
