Coexistence between farmers using different crop production systems needs tolerance, since the growing of plants represents an open system and a perfect separation of plant materials between neighbouring fields is not possible. In the case of genetically modified (GM) plants, the situation is...

Transgenic glufosinate- and glyphosate-resistant crops are currently commercialized, and bromoxynil-resistant crops have been removed from the market for economic reasons. Glyphosate-resistant cotton and soyabean have become dominant in those countries where they have been approved for planting....

Growers have rapidly adopted transgenic herbicide-resistant (HR) crops, such as canola (Brassica napus L.), soyabean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], maize (Zea mays L.) and cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.), across North America (USA and Canada) since their commercial introduction in the 1990s. With their...

The history of genetic improvement of arthropod natural enemies is reviewed briefly and I describe the successful genetic improvement and deployment in California almond orchards of a pesticide-resistant predatory mite. Lessons learned from our efforts to deploy this and other natural enemies in...

The four main ecological concerns from transgenic Bt crops are gene flow of the transgenes to other plant species or strains, evolution of resistance by the target pests, effects of the Bt protein in the soil, and harmful effects on non-target species exposed to the Bt protein. In terms of the...
