বিস্তারিত :Why Bt brinjal?
Bt brinjal provides and effective environmentally friendly and economically sustainable solution to tackle crop losses resulting from fruit and shoot borer infestation. The cry1-Ac protein produced in Bt brinjal is similar in structure and activity to that found in nature and is already available and used commercially by organic growers. However, pesticidal sprays are only effective during a brief window then the larvae hatches from the egg and bores into the fruit or shoot of the brinjal plant. Once the larvae takes refuge within the fruit they are safe from surface sprays however intensive they may be, and are free to destroy the crop from within. Bt brinjal, ensures a built-in resistance against the fruit and shoot borer larvae.
