Adoption and Uptake Pathway of GM Technology by Chinese Smallholders: Evidence from Bt Cotton ProductionFebruary 5, 2014
The full report of the research Adoption and Uptake Pathway of GM Technology by Chinese Smallholders: Evidence from Bt Cotton Production was released by the Center for Chinese Agricultural Policy, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The research was part of the Asian collaborative research project Adoption and Uptake Pathways of Biotech Crops by Small-scale Resource-poor Asian Farmers: Comparative Studies in China, India, and the Philippines implemented by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications ( ISAAA) and funded by the John Templeton Foundation.
The report documents the impact of adopting Bt cotton by Chinese farmers. Pathways tracing how the adoption of biotech crops spread in the farming communities in China were also discussed.
