Believe it or not, for the first time ever, Monsanto has admitted that pests have developed a resistance to their Bt (genetically modified) Cotton.

Of course, their solution is to switch to their 2nd generation of Bt seeds. You can read the full article in The Hindu.
When will we figure out that the "easy answer" often leads to a whole series of more challenging problems than the first one?
