Chapter 6 (Page no: 123)

Transgenic insecticidal cultivars in integrated pest management: challenges and opportunities.

This paper identifies the challenges and opportunities pertinent to wide-scale adoption of transgenic insecticidal crop cultivars (including cultivars that express Bacillus thuringiensis endotoxin genes and those that express plant-derived enzyme inhibitors and lectins). Emphasis is given on the likely interactions of transgenic crop cultivars with biological control agents (such as parasitoids) and impacts on the pest populations at the agroecosystem level.
