[SANET-MG] GM root worm resistant corn may be failing

Monsanto GM corn root worm (Mon 863) seems to be failing. The University
of Illinois  recently reported on this  problem and the results of their
field tests. A corn farmers discussion group  commented on  Monsanto GM
root worm corn  noting that seed company demonstration plots never
failed but farm plantings were a disaster. One farmer commented that
only his refuge planting survived  root worm because he was allowed to
spray it with insecticide! The press does not yet seem to have picked up
on the problem. Any fuller comments would be welcomed.
