Transgenic and conventional insect and weed control systems Conference Paper uri icon


  • The Roundup Ready(TM) system provided similar weed control, but consistently lower yields and net returns as compared with conventional weed control systems. Three days after insecticide applications were made to cotton in conventional insecticide system plots, unsprayed cotton in the Bollgard(TM) system showed more worm damage than cotton in the conventional system. However, this damage did not translate to higher yields or net returns for the conventional insect control systems.
