Description: We used an alternative data set from Plexus Marketing Research, Inc. and Timber Mill Research, Inc. to reestimate rent creation and distribution from the adoption of Bt cotton in 1996. This alternative data set allowed us to compare the sensitivity of the estimates for 1996 presented in a previous paper. Results from both estimations indicate that farmers gain between 43% and 59% of all rents created from the introduction and adoption of Bt cotton. In contrast, the innovators (Delta and Pine Land, and Monsanto) gain between 47% and 26% of all rents in 1996.
