Well, of course it does. Bt works by a physical action, not a chemical one. Who the hell thought it wouldn’t? You can spray the surface of the corn plant, without spraying the edible kernels, and kill the pests. You don’t need to create a monster corn plant that has Bt embedded in it.
Europe wouldn’t allow Bt corn for years, until Monsanto finally got its way in France early this year.
But China won’t take it.
Why, and who are those “observers”?
We’ll just sell it to someone else.
