No 20334, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: A general equilibrium model is developed to analyze the welfare effects of transgenic technologies for both the irrigated and non-irrigated rice ecosystems in Asia. Drought resistance, a technology of particular importance to unfavorable environments, is worth as much as Bt rice, a technology of primary importance to favorable environments.
