Compositions et procédés de contrôle d'infestation d'insectes dans des plantes

Zusammensetzungen und Verfahren zur Kontrolle von Insektenbefall bei Pflanzen

Compositions and methods for control of insect infestations in plants


The present invention is directed to controlling pest infestation by inhibiting one or more biological functions in an invertebrate pest. The invention discloses methods and compositions for use in controlling pest infestation by feeding one or more different recombinant double stranded RNA molecules to the pest in order to achieve a reduction in pest infestation through suppression of gene expression. The invention is also directed to methods for making transgenic plants that express the double stranded RNA molecules, and to particular combinations of transgenic pesticidal agents for use in protecting plants from pest infestation.
