Summary

Two transgenic corn varieties, the new hybrid CR (Cry1Ab) and B73xMo17-Bt+, were field grown and compared for their nutritional value. Lignin content was significantly higher in the Bt versus isogenics. There was also lower protein in Bt+ and more sugar in stalk/leaves. The transgenic varieties also had less ergosterol and fumonisin. The rate of fermentation was significantly higher for Bt+ varieties.

Comments

Showed differences between lines are not just due to Bt insertion.
