Farm-level production effects related to the adoption of genetically modified cotton for pest management
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Herbicide-tolerant and Bt cotton varieties may offer farmers many benefits, including decreased pesticide use, increased yields, and greater planting flexibility. Farmer benefits appear to outweigh costs, translating into rapid adoption of these cotton varieties. USDA survey data was used to estimate the effect of GM cotton on crop yields, profits, and pesticide applications.
