An Econometric and Game Theoretic Analysis of Producer and Consumer Preferences Toward Agricultural BiotechnologyWestern Kentucky University (2005)
Agricultural biotechnology offers tremendous benefits to farmers and to society as it provides tools for mitigation of a number of environmental externalities related to water quality, food safety, and climate change. However, perceptions of the safety of recombinant DNA technology on the part of consumers and management decisions by producers can shape the policy environment in ways that may inhibit expanded use of biotech traits in agriculture. This presentation presents a summary of results from an econometric and game theoretic analysis of consumer perceptions and producer decisions as they relate to agricultural biotechnology.
Submitted in partial fulfillment of AGRI 598 Research Seminar in Agriculture.
