    . It lays out a simple procedure for identifying the target species most at risk of resistance evolution, and proposes effective and potentially workable plans to manage this resistance risk to delay the occurrence of resistance to Bt cotton. It also considers approaches for developing a practical monitoring and response system to detect resistance and to adapt management appropriately.
