Select the correct statement.
National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) Lucknow has developed a pest-resistant variety of cotton. Whiteflies are one of the top ten devastating pests in the world that damage more than 2000 plant species and also function as vectors for some 200-plant viruses. Cotton is one of the worst hit crops by these. In a move to fight against whiteflies National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) Lucknow has developed a pest-resistant variety of cotton and is going to start field trials this year from April to October in Faridkot Center of Punjab Agriculture University, Ludhiana. They used the leaf extract of an edible fern Tectariamacrodonta which causes toxicity to the whitefly. This fern is known to be used as salad in Nepal and as a concoction for the gastric disorders in many regions of Asia.
