Ten essays, presented by Tripp (formerly of the Economics Program of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center), explore the debates concerning the impact of genetically modified crops in developing countries, focusing on the experience of genetically modified, insect-resistant cotton, which is the most widely grown genetically modified crop in developing countries. Opening chapters provide an introduction to agricultural biotechnology, a brief history of cotton production technology, and a review of the economic and institutional impacts of genetically modified cotton over the first decade of use. Case studies of the Chinese, Indian, South African, and Colombian experiences of genetically modified cotton are then presented, followed by a summary review.
