To Bt or Not to Bt? Risk and Uncertainty Considerations in Technology Assessment

Published By: IGIDR on eSS | Published Date: January, 20 , 2012

Production costs and crop incomes in drought years are analyzed to test a simplistic theory of risk based on first principles. A mixed-methods framework is employed to draw inferences by combining data from two cross-sectional surveys in Gujarat (Saurashtra and Southern-Plains) and Maharashtra (Western Vidarbha) for the period 2009-10 and compare it with unit-level data for the corresponding regions from a nationally representative sample for the period 2002-03.[WP-2012-001].
