Which crop is affected by boll worm disease?

Answer: Cotton

The cotton crop is extremely vulnerable to pests and diseases. Cotton is vulnerable to moth pests like the Pink Bollworm, as well as sap-sucking pests like aphids and mealy bugs. GM cotton was created to address this weakness.
Cotton that has been genetically altered carries a pesticide gene from the Bacillus thuringiensis bacteria. This keeps the plant safe from the bollworm.
