Regulated field experiments were conducted in Ilagan, Isabela and Tupi, South Cotabato to assess the effects of two new Bt corn hybrids (MON89034 expressing two insecticidal proteins, Cry1A.105 and Cry2Ab2 and MON89034/NK603 that additionally expresses glyphosate resistance) on non-target organisms (NTOs) specifically arthropods. Effects were assessed in comparison with two non-Bt corn hybrids (DK818 isogenic conventional corn and NK603 with glyphosate resistance trait) with no chemical… 
The Cultivation of Bt Corn Producing Cry1Ac Toxins Does Not Adversely Affect Non-Target Arthropods
TLDR
Results from the present work support that Bt corn producing Cry1Ac toxins does not adversely affect NTAs.
