Size and Distribution of Market Benefits From Adopting Biotech Crops
This study estimates the size and distribution of benefits from adopting Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) cotton, herbicide-tolerant cotton, and herbicide-tolerant soybeans in 1997. The stakeholders considered are U.S. farmers, U.S. consumers, biotechnology developers, germplasm suppliers, and producers and consumers in the rest of the world.
Keywords: Bt cotton, herbicide-tolerant cotton, herbicide-tolerant soybeans, agricultural biotechnology, market benefits, stakeholders, distribution of benefits
