PHILIPPINES Savants hail SC’s issuing writ on Bt eggplant by Jonathan Mayuga / Correspondent 15-May-2012 Business Mirror
The 10-year-old Bt eggplant project is on its final stage. Scientists expect the commercialization of Bt eggplant by 2013. The project aims to develop eggplant varieties that are resistant to the pest, particularly fruit and shoot borer.

Pest-resistant Bt Brinjal comes under pest attack Farmers now forced to spray pesticides
Bt Brinjal, introduced in the country by the government for its pest resistance, has severely been attacked by pests this season for which farmers are now forced to spray a lot of pesticides, farmers alleged.
Seeds of the genetically modified (GM) vegetable variety, which is being permitted to be cultivated at farmers' level despite huge protest from the biodiversity experts and common people, were given to farmers on January 20 this year.
The Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), under an agreement with multinational seed giant Monsanto-Mahyco, developed Bt Brinjal after inserting Bt gene to nine local brinjal seed varieties.
Chairman of Bij Bistar Foundation and crop specialist Dr MA Sobhan told the FE that a team of his organisation visited the Bt Brinjal fields at Bhoroimari and Boktarpur village under Iswardi upazila in Pabna district last week.
He said, "We visited two fields where plants have been attacked by red and white fly, jab and other pests."
He said, "It is natural. Bt Brinjal is resistant only to shoot borer, but nearly 37 kinds of pests attack brinjal. The genetic engineering might have made the brinjal variety further weak to other pest attacks."
