Tastes great, Less filling

A farmers organization in Mato Grosso has filed a complaint against
the large corn seed companies.

The BT corn seed is said to be resistant to caterpillars.

This past season producers needed to apply insecticide in conjunction
with the seed trait to control them.

Some caterpillars say the corn tastes great,


Say the corn is less filling.


This new evolution needs to be watched with the soon to
be planted RRII intacta trait in soybeans.

I have heard that a few producers did need to spray insecticide
on 2nd crop soybeans to control the Helicoverpa armigera.

Farmers are happy to pay for tech fee if they get results.

If they do not, a novella starts.

* novella = soap opera
