The goal for this product is that this be relevant and useful for growers, consultants, and anybody else who wants to know about Bt crops and resistance. There does not seem to be a similar video on Youtube that covers this ground, so hopefully this will fill a niche and provide some useful information and be a starting point for a discussion that will continue as Bt crop challenges mount.

The committee who developed the video consisted of:

Chris Difonzo, Michigan State University

Christian Krupke, Purdue University

Jocelyn Smith, Ridgetown campus, University of Guelph

Joseph Spencer, Illinois Natural History Survey

Special thanks also to the following industry partners, who provided input and reviews on the script and participated in our phone meetings from start to finish:
