Managing the invasive fall armyworm through biotech crops: a Chinese perspective.

Abstract

In late 2018, the highly destructive and polyphagous fall armyworm was first detected in China. It is now a major economic threat to corn production. In this article, the main control strategies that are available are reviewed and prospects to manage this pest with Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) corn in China are discussed.
