Four of the six GMO maize fields, an experiment of the Dutch governement, did not survive the season. The BT-maize of seed multinational Monsanto is made resistent against the (not yet in the Netherlands living) European corn borer. But nature strikes back. The fields near Lelystad (provincial capital of Flevoland), Drimmelen (province of Noord-Brabant), Meerlo-Wanssum (northern Limburg) and Nuth (southern Limburg) have partially or completely fallen prey to other plagues like maize hackers, slammers and cutters.
