How to use the Trait Table (and what it tells you about your corn hybrid)
The publication has a column titled 'Resistance confirmed to the combination of Bts in package' to highlight insect x Bt combinations with documented field-failures, confirmed resistance, or cross-resistance. These statements are based on published lab assays &/or field research. This column is intended to alert growers and consultants to potential management problems, influence seed selection, and encourage field scouting.
It is important to note that the Trait Table is a national publication and resistance may be widespread (as in western bean cutworm) or regional (as in corn rootworm). Check with your local seed company or extension personnel for the types of Bt resistance present in your area.
