ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the genetically engineered triple-stack corn hybrids which confers resistance against insect pests and has better corn yield and stability than the control hybrids. Regression analysis of the yield of triple-stacked hybrid against their isogenic control shows an increase in yield stability for the triple-stacked hybrid. It reports that farmer receives a major benefit in annual yield from the use of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) transgenic insect-resistant crops.
