Abstract

Effects of pesticide applications, based on an IPM program on cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera Hubner, cotton mirids and cotton leafhoppers, were evaluated in transgenic Bt-cotton and non-transgenic cotton agroecosystems between 1999 and 2001 in China. Differences in pest populations between cotton varieties were also compared.
