Transgenic Insecticidal Corn: The Agronomic and Ecological Rationale for Its UseBioScience
Document TypeLetter to the Editor
AbstractThe scientific community has examined the risks and benefits of Bt plants more than any other novel agricultural technology developed over the past two decades, as demonstrated by the vast body of literature, scientific discussions, and numerous public meetings facilitated by the EPA, the US Department of Agriculture, and the US Food and Drug Administration on this subject.We find the evidence to date supports the appropriate use of Bt corn as one component in the economically and ecologically sound management of lepidopteran corn pests.
