Bt Brinjal: The Bangladesh ExperienceJanuary 16, 2019
One of the major problems of Bangladeshi farmers in brinjal farming is the fruit and shoot borer. Years ago, their only option was to spray the brinjal plants several times to control the pest. To manage this problem, scientists developed an insect resistant brinjal (Bt brinjal). Today, farmers in the country are reaping the benefits of the crop.
Watch the Bt brinjal experience in Bangladesh now.
