Environmental risk assessment of genetically modified organisms. Volume 1: A case study of Bt maize in Kenya.

Book cover for Environmental risk assessment of genetically modified organisms. Volume 1: A case study of Bt maize in Kenya.

Description

Many international fora have identified the need for comprehensive, transparent, scientific methods for the pre-release testing and post-release monitoring of transgenic plants to ensure their environmental safety and sustainable use. There is also wide recognition that the regulatory and scientific capacity for conducting assessments needs to be strengthened worldwide. This book presents a case s...

Chapter 7 (Page no: 209)

Resistance risks and management associated with Bt maize in Kenya.

This chapter addresses the risk that insect pests associated with Bt maize may evolve resistance to Bt proteins. A series of questions has been constructed to assess risk resistance prior to field release, and before and after commercial release. A possible resistance management plan for the use of Bt maize to control stem borers in Kenya is presented.
