1) Name the insect that attacks cotton crops and causes lot of damage to the crop. How have Bt cotton plants overcome this problem to save the crop? Explain.
2) List any three important steps to be kept in mind for successful bee keeping.
1) The insect that attacks cotton crops and greatly damages them is known as the cotton bollworm.
The presence of the cry gene in the Bt cotton crop's genome confers bollworm resistance. A poison that is produced by this gene kills the bollworm.
2) Beekeeping is the practice of raising and controlling honey bees in order to produce honey and beeswax.
The following are five factors that are crucial for successful beekeeping.
a) An understanding of bee behavior and nature.
b) Choosing an appropriate place for the beehives.
c) Capturing swarms and hives.
