Insect resistant crops (IRC)

Should reduce use of insecticides.

This is beneficial to environment because:

-  less impact on food web as not eradicating part of the food chain.

-  Effect of insect resistant crops on other organisms

-  Possible effect on non-target organisms who eat plant (student not expected to have read any research but could hypothesise)

- Possible impact on food web connections from a decrease in insect populations.
