The use of mixtures of transgenic insecticidal seed and nontransgenic seed to provide an in-field refuge for susceptible insects in insect-resistance-management (IRM) plans has been considered for at
Over the past 50 years and longer, the supply of food commodities has grown faster than the effective market demand, in spite of increasing population and per capita incomes.
This article develops a framework to examine the ex ante benefits of transgenic research on drought in eight low-income countries, including the benefits to producers and consumers from farm income stabilization and the potential magnitude of private sector profits from intellectual property rights (IPRs).
Large gaps exist in our knowledge of the current geographic distribution and spatial patterns of performance of crops, and these gaps are unlikely to be filled.
The introduction and rapid adoption of herbicide-tolerant crops has renewed interest in better understanding the characteristics of herbicides and weed-management programs that are important to growers besides profitability.
Roundup Ready® (RR) crops have been widely adopted because they provide significant benefits to growers, but glyphosate-resistant weeds threaten the sustainability of these benefits.
This study estimates grower benefits of Roundup-Ready (RR) weed management programs and how weed-resistance concerns and resistance-management practices affect those benefits.
In spite of widespread adoption, there is mixed evidence as to whether adopting genetically modified (GM) crops increases farm welfare.
This study examined adoption of 10 best management practices (BMPs) to control weed resistance to herbicides using data from a survey of more than 1,000 US corn, cotton, and soybean growers.
