History of Bt Cotton – Increase in Mirid Bugs
So now, not only are farmers planting Bt cotton crops to ward off bollworms, but they are spraying increasing amounts of pesticides to tackle the mirid bugs that only became a problem because of the Bt crops! This is hardly a benefit to the environment.
Mirid Bugs are a Threat to Green Beans, Vegetables, Fruits and Cereal Crops
Jeffrey Smith visited one village in Andhra Pradesh and interviewed the villagers and reported: “Buffalo grazed on cotton plants for eight years without incident. But on January 3rd, 2008, 13 buffalo grazed on Bt cotton plants for the first time. All died within three days.
The village also lost 26 goats and sheep.
Buffalo in Haryana, India who are fed the Bt variety of cottonseed and oil cakes, suffered from reproductive disorders, skin problems, and sudden death of both adults and calves.
According to Jeffrey Smith: “Bt corn is also implicated in the deaths of cows in Germany, and horses, water buffaloes, and chickens in the Philippines.”
