Cotton is also used in the production of cooking oil, feed meal, cosmetics, paper, packaging and more. But pests like the cotton bollworm can damage harvests.
The new GlyTolTM-LibertyLinkTM-TwinLinkTM system from Bayer in cotton seed combines different genes that protect the plants against pests and herbicides.
The protection from the inside helps farmers save on input costs. This technology combined with elite germplasm helps produce more and higher quality fibers.
