About 90% of an estimated 121.91 lakh hectare area under the cotton cultivation in India is the (Bio Tech) Bt cotton variety. India entered commercial agricultural biotechnology in 2002 with the approval of Bt cotton hybrids for commercial cultivation. Introduced at a time when cotton was grown on 5% of the total crop area, but used up 55% pesticides, transgenic Bt cotton has lived up to its promise of reduced insecticide use and protection against major species of Indian bollworms, greater yield and cost-effectiveness while being an environmentally safe alternative to conventional cotton seeds.
