English term or phrase: extension cotton specialist
Mid-South cotton growers are spraying GM Bt insecticidal cotton with chemical pesticides more and more every year, says Arkansas ***Extension Cotton Specialist*** Bill Robertson, and “some technology traits are holding up better than others — but we’re having to overspray all technologies more now than we have in the past.” The problem lies in growing pest resistance to the Bt toxins engineered into the crops.
