Chapter synopsis: Host plant resistance is an important and foundational element of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The application of genetic engineering (GE) has significantly accelerated the deployment of host plant resistance in several cropping systems. Current GE crops represent powerful forms of antibiotic host plant resistance. This chapter provides a broad review of the application of GE-based host plant resistance within an IPM context. The chapter explores the environmental aspects of GE-based host resistance, its integration into IPM, and resistance management. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future GE crops.
