    TwinLink Strengthens Crop Protection for Textile Production

The natural fiber cotton is an extremely valuable resource for the textile industry, and is also used in the production of paper and packaging materials. However, pests such as the cotton bollworm can severely reduce harvest yields and compromise the quality of the fibers. The TwinLink™ technology protects cotton plants against hungry caterpillars.
