Decomposition processes under Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) maize: Results of a multi-site experiment. Cortet, J., Andersen, M., N., Caul, S., Griffiths, B., Joffre, R., Lacroix, B., Sausse, C., Thompson, J., & Krogh, P., H. Soil Biology and Biochemistry, 38(1):195-199, 2006.
Decomposition processes under Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) maize: Results of a multi-site experiment [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
The effects of maize expressing the Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1Ab protein (Bt maize) on decomposition processes under three different European climatic conditions were assessed in the field. Farming practices using Bt maize were compared with conventional farming practices using near-isogenic non-Bt maize lines under realistic agricultural practices. The litter-bag method was used to study litter decomposition and nitrogen mineralization dynamics of wheat straw. After 4 months incubation in the field, decomposition and mineralization were mainly influenced by climatic conditions with no negative effect of the Bt toxin on decomposition processes. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
