Transgenic cotton that produces insecticidal proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), often referred to as Bt cotton, is widely grown in many countries. Bt cotton with a single cry1A gene and stacked also with cry2A gene has provided satisfactory protection against the damage by the lepidopteran bollworms, especially the cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa(More)
The analysis of reciprocal genetic crosses between resistant Helicoverpa armigera strain (BH-R) (227.9-fold) with susceptible Vadodara (VA-S) strain showed dominance (h) of 0.65-0.89 and degree of dominance (D) of 0.299-0.782 suggesting Cry1Ac resistance as a semi-dominant trait. The D and h values of F(1) hybrids of female resistant parent were higher than(More)
