Caption: Genetically modified cotton crop. Rows of mature cotton plants, (Gossypium sp.) in a field. These particular plants are BT-Roundup Ready 'stacked gene' cotton plants which have built-in resistance to various pests. Cotton is grown for the white fibres (lint) contained within their seed capsules (bolls) and these fibres are used to make cloth. These plants are ready for harvesting. The first stage of harvesting involves stripping the leaves from the plant. The bolls are then collected. Photographed in Arkansas, USA.
