Insect Control and Dosage Effects in Transgenic Canola Containing a Synthetic Bacillus thuringiensis cryIAc Gene
Zygotic hypocotyls of canola (Brassica napus L.) cv Oscar, cv Westar, and the breeding line UGA188–20B were transformed with a truncated synthetic Bacillus thuringiensis insecticidal crystal proteinExpand

Canola: an emerging oilseed crop.
INTRODUCTION Oilseed rape (Brassica and related species, Brassicaceae) is now the second largest oilseed crop in the world providing 13% of the world’s supply. The world’s commerce is largelyExpand

Bt-transgenic oilseed rape hybridization with its weedy relative, Brassica rapa.
The movement of transgenes from crops to weeds and the resulting consequences are concerns of modern agriculture. The possible generation of "superweeds" from the escape of fitness-enhancingExpand

Growth, productivity, and competitiveness of introgressed weedy Brassica rapa hybrids selected for the presence of Bt cry1Ac and gfp transgenes
Concerns exist that transgenic crop × weed hybrid populations will be more vigorous and competitive with crops compared with the parental weed species. Hydroponic, glasshouse, and field experimentsExpand

Increased fitness of transgenic insecticidal rapeseed under insect selection pressure
Rapeseed Brassica napus L. transgenic for a Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) transgene was developed and was shown to be insecticidal towards certain caterpillars including the diamondback moth PlutellaExpand

Hybridization and backcrossing between transgenic oilseed rape and two related weed species under field conditions.
Determining the frequency of crop-wild transgene flow under field conditions is a necessity for the development of regulatory strategies to manage transgenic hybrids. Gene flow of green fluorescentExpand

Intraspecific Competition of an Insect‐Resistant Transgenic Canola in Seed Mixtures
Seed mixtures are recommended as a strategy to minimize or avoid having insects develop resistance to insect-resistant transgenic crops. The objective of this study was to evaluate a canola, BrassicaExpand

Chemical and instrumental characterization of maturing kenaf core and bast
Abstract A limiting factor in the production of bast fiber from kenaf is retting, the process by which the fiber is freed from the non-fibrous tissue. An objective of this study was to evaluate theExpand
