Summary

Survival of Bt spores was determined in natural soil in the laboratory and in nature. pH had little effect on survival of spores that survived the first 2 weeks. Remoistening of a desiccated soil caused a decrease in spore numbers in laboratory tests, but not in a natural environment.

Comments

This study did not use transgenic plant material, but Dipel 4L�.
