Risk assessment team on Bt plants wins Integrated Pest Management Award
Date:9/11/2013

orld were analyzed that showed currently used Bt crops do not cause any unexpected detrimental effects on predators or parasitoids or on the biological control function they provide. These analyses also helped to validate the tier-testing system used by various regulatory agencies.

In crops where the introduction of Bt-transgenic varieties results in significant reductions of insecticide applications, clear benefits on arthropod abundance in general, and natural enemies in particular, were found.

Bt crops have become a valuable component of IPM by contributing to natural enemy conservation while at the same time protecting the crops from targeted pests. Overall, the assessment and testing approaches developed by the team will enhance the robustness and rigor of risk assessment and thus increase the environmental safety of Bt crops and other novel transgenic crops in the future.

The year's Integrated Pest Management Team Award, which is sponsored by Dow AgroSciences, will be presented to the team at Entomology 2013, the 61st Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America, in Austin, TX this November.
