Confined field trials of biotech maize in Tanzania, now in their second year, have shown that the crops are resistant to stem borers and fall armyworms and produce yield increases of up to 58% above conventional maize. The trials, conducted in semiarid Makutupora, are also assessing the plants' resilience to drought, the biggest threat to maize in Africa.
