The indirect effect of Cry 1Ab protein expressed in Bt maize, on the biology of Chrysoperla pudica (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
Genetically modified (GM) maize was developed mainly to control lepidopteran pests such as the maize stem borer (Busseola fusca) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae). Since the first commercialization of GM crops with insecticidal ...
Base-line susceptibility of Busseola fusca for Bt maize in South Africa
(North-West University (South Africa), 2015)
Genetically modified maize that express insecticidal proteins (Bt proteins) have been commercialized in South Africa for the control of Busseola fusca (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae). Busseola fusca has been reported to be ...
An investigation into the development and status of resistance of Busseola fusca (Lepidoptera : Noctuidae) to Bt maize
(North-West University, 2010)
Based on surface area, South Africa is currently ranked 8th in planting genetically modified (GM) crops in the world. The stem borer, Busseola fusca (Fuller) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) is of economic importance throughout ...
The role of gut microbes on the efficacy of Bt maize against lepidopteran stem borers
(North-West University, 2015)
The evolution of pest resistance to Cry proteins threatens the long-term use of Bt crops. Busseola fusca developed resistance to Bt maize in South Africa but the mechanism of resistance is not well understood. According ...
