This review summarizes the literature linking Bt [Bacillus thuringiensis] corn and the reduction of the mycotoxins fumonisin, aflatoxin, deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone. Mycotoxins in field corn cause hundreds of millions of dollars in economic losses annually in the USA, and substantially...

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...
