Milon Mia (l) and his father (r), from the Bogra district, show Tony Shelton (center) the difference between Bt brinjal and fruit and shoot borer infested non-Bt brinjal. Mia says he throws away 30-40% of his harvested non-Bt brinjal even after spraying pesticides twice a week. This season, he has already sold 800 kg of bt brinjal, which was free of fruit and shoot borer damage and required no pesticides.
