Table 2: 2011 Transgenic Corn Hybrids and Bt Traits
Comments: Management of several insect pests of corn may be accomplished by using corn hybrids which have been genetically engineered to produce Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and certain insect toxins. Bt hybrids events and their toxins target specific insect pests. Be sure to match these hybrids to the pests requiring control. Follow all refuse requirements associated with these Bt hybrids.
