Lehmann said com borer damage across the
nation on the average takes seven to 1S percent of
the yield. With borer protected plants, 2.S mil
lion acres of com could be available for other
uses; 100,000 tons of nitrogen fertilizer would
not be needed; 22.5 million gallons of fossil fuel
would not be needed; $5O million in pesticides
would not be needed. “That’s the power the tech
nology has,” Lehmann said.
European com borer protected plants could
increase yield equivalent to 66 percent of com
production in France, total production in Canada,
twice the needs of France, 20 percent of the needs
in Brazil, and 15 percent of the needs in the U.S.
While the registration process is formidable, it
is not as stringent for biological products as with
On the present time schedule, Ciba officials
