Eggplant (Solanum melongena Linn.), or brinjal, was engineered to express an insecticidal protein (Cry1Ac) from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and commercialized in Bangladesh on a limited basis in 2014. As part of an insect resistance management strategy, studies were conducted to determine the susceptibility of the targeted insect pest, the eggplant fruit and shoot borer, Leucinodes orbonalis (Guenée), to Cry1Ac using a diet-incorporation bioassay method. Eighteen populations of L. orbonalis… Expand

Insecticidal Activity of Bacillus thuringiensis Strains on the Nettle Caterpillar, Euprosterna elaeasa (Lepidoptera: Limacodidae)
TLDR
The data suggest that Bt-strains have insecticidal activity against E. elaeasa and, therefore, have potential applications in oil palm pest management schemes. Expand

BASELINE SUSCEPTIBILITY OF EGGPLANT FRUIT AND SHOOT BORER, Leucinodes orbonalis Guenée IN THE PHILIPPINES TO A Bacillus thuringiensis CRY1Ac INSECTICIDAL PROTEIN
TLDR
The baseline susceptibility of eggplant fruit and shoot borer populations in the Philippines to a Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1Ac protein was evaluated using a diet-overlay bioassay to generate more reliable estimates of the LC 99 values which can be considered for development of diagnostic concentrations in resistance monitoring.

Bt eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) in Bangladesh: Fruit production and control of eggplant fruit and shoot borer (Leucinodes orbonalis Guenee), effects on non-target arthropods and economic returns
TLDR
It is indicated that the four Bt brinjal lines are extremely effective at controlling BFSB in Bangladesh without affecting other arthropods, and provide greater economic returns than their non-Bt isolines. Expand
Baseline Susceptibility in Brinjal Shoot and Fruite Borer Populations of North Karnataka
TLDR
The susceptibility to Cry1Ac among ten populations of the fruit and shoot borer observed in this study indicates limited variability and the populations have 1-4 fold variability across the locations. Expand
Assessing Potential Impact of Bt Eggplants on Non-Target Arthropods in the Philippines
TLDR
Bt eggplants can be a foundational component for controlling EFSB in an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program and dramatically reduce dependence on conventional insecticides. Expand
Genetically engineered crops help support conservation biological control
TLDR
Overall, the vast majority of studies demonstrates that the insecticidal proteins deployed today cause no unintended adverse effects to natural enemies, and when Bt crops replace synthetic chemical insecticides for target pest control, this creates an environment supportive of the conservation of natural enemies.

TLDR
Eight years without resistance provides a timely opportunity for researchers, regulators and industry to reassess the risk of resistance and the most effective strategies to preserve Bt and other novel insect-resistant crops in development. Expand
