Multi-toxin resistance enables pink bollworm survival on Bt cotton
GM Watch - 11/28/2015.
In an attempt to counter pest resistance to Bt crops, many growers have switched from GM crops that produce one Bt toxin to those producing two or more Bt toxins that kill the same pest. The idea behind such “pyramid” crops is that insects resistant to one toxin are killed by another. But in a laboratory study, researchers produced rapid resistance in pink bollworms to two-toxin Bt cotton.
