There is no definite answer to this question since there are so many varieties of corn and insect repellents. Depending on the type of corn and insect repellent you can get two very different types of result.

Farmers chose the type of repellent that they use knowing fully the effects that it will have on their crops. After careful consideration taking into account climatic conditions, the effectiveness of the repellent and the results required then farmer will then make his choice.

The issue of genetically modified crops has sparked lots of debate, with many people arguing for and against their use. With this in mind, and aware of environmental demands, farmers are very careful with their choices and aware of the ecological effects of the chemicals that they are using.

When applying chemicals to their crops, they have to follow very close guidelines to ensure that they are following the correct procedures. With crop production carefully monitored and tested, any mistakes in the application of chemicals can be very costly. Crops can be withheld and fines applied for inappropriate use of crops which can cause problems for animals and also humans involved in the food chain.

Ensuring that the cotton is produced to the highest standards is essential if the farmer is to remain competitive in the market place. With other farmers all using similar supplements the option of going back to basic methods isn't economically viable.

Government agencies carefully monitor the supply and application of all type of additives to ensure that everything remains compliant and that there are no harmful spin-offs due to the competitiveness of one area of the industry. Those involved in farming are kept fully up to date with these regulations to ensure that their business remains viable.
