<i>Bt</i> cotton adoption high in Myanmar

Some 75% of cotton being grown in Myanmar consists of genetically modified insect-resistant Bt cotton, says a report from the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA). It says that a long-staple line named “Silver Sixth” popularly known as “Ngwe chi 6” Bt cotton is the only GM line being used. It was developed within the country in 2001 and approved for commercial cultivation in 2006. The only non-GM variety planted in the country last year was a short-staple one, for which no Bt cotton lines are available.
