In March, this year an unprecedented number of hybrids of bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) resistant cotton will be planted in India. A recent model simulating the development of insect resistance to Bt cotton predicts that such monoculture could lead to resistance within a few years. The risk of resistance as a consequence of gene monoculture is higher in india where Bt crops are planted ilegally than in other countries producing transgenic crops. Next month 12 new Bt cotton hybrids wll enter the indian market, all carrying the same CryIAc gene licensed from US seed giant monsanto. Four of the six Indian companies that have licensed the gene, including Mahyco in Jalna, Raasi Seeds in Attur, Akur seeds limited in nagpur and nuzhiveedu seeds in hyderabad, will each release three Bt hybrids.
