Shoot & fruit borer: Leucinodes orbonalis F:Pyraustidae,O: Lepidoptera :

Shoot & fruit borer: Leucinodes orbonalis F:Pyraustidae,O: Lepidoptera Distribution Most destructive pest of brinjal , found throughout the country . Host range Also attacks potato and other solanaceous crops. Damage symptoms: When the infestation is on shoots, they bend down and whither, affected leaves and shoot wither and dry At later stage of growth, caterpillars bore into flower buds and fruits , sometimes from under the calyx, when no visible symptoms are apparent. Damaged flower buds are shed and fruits show circular holes. The large holes seen on fruits are usually the exit holes of the caterpillars. The content of vitamin C in the fruits of the brinjal is found to be reduced 2/22/2012 12 M.Sakthivel

What is Bt Brinjal? :

What is Bt Brinjal ? Bt Brinjal is a transgenic brinjal created out of inserting a gene [Cry 1Ac] from the soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis into Brinjal . The insertion of the gene into the Brinjal cell in young cotyledons has been done through an Agrobacterium-mediated vector , along with other genes like promoters, markers etc. This is said to give the Brinjal plant resistance against lepidopteran insects like the Brinjal Fruit and Shoot Borer ( Leucinodes orbonalis ) and Fruit Borer ( Helicoverpa armigera ). 2/22/2012 21 M.Sakthivel


Contd …. The transformation work on Bt Brinjal started in Year 2000. Biosafety tests like pollen flow studies, acute oral toxicity etc., were taken up along with back-crossing programme from 2002 . After two years of greenhouse evaluation, in 2004, multi-locational field trials were conducted in 11 locations with five hybrids [ Mahyco’s MHB-4 Bt Brinjal , MHB-9 Bt Brinjal , MHB-10 Bt Brinjal , MHB-80 Bt Brinjal and MHB-99 Bt Brinjal ]. This was also the year when ICAR [Indian Council for Agricultural Research] took up trials with the same hybrids under the All India Coordinated Research Project on Vegetable Cultivation in 11 locations. 2/22/2012 22 M.Sakthivel

Why Bt Brinjal ????:

Why Bt Brinjal ???? It is reported that the average shoot damage in Bt Brinjal hybrids ranged from 0.04% to 0.3% as compared to 0.12% to 2.5% in non- Bt Brinjal hybrids. The percentage of damaged fruits reportedly ranged from 2.5% to 20% in Bt Brinjal to 24% to 58% in non- Bt counterparts No significant difference was noted between Bt Brinjal and Non- Bt Brinjal , as per the company which did biosafety tests like acute oral toxicity, sub-chronic oral toxicity in rats, allergenecity of protein to rats, germination, weediness and aggressiveness tests, soil micro-biota studies etc. This will help small and marginal farmers from having to use 25-80 sprays of pesticides which are ineffective, says the company . 2/22/2012 23 M.Sakthivel
