Research Project: ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF BT CORN TECHNOLOGIES AND ASSOCIATED REFUGE SYSTEMS Project Number: 6402-22000-063-06
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 01, 2010
End Date: Apr 01, 2013

Objective:
To identify the Bt corn technology and its associated refuge system that provides the most economic benefit to producers.

Approach:
Data will be collected from multiple field tests located in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. All production costs and operations will be recorded for each site. Impact of corn techonologies on insects and yelds will be collected. An economic analysis will be conducted to compare net return above treatment costs of each Bt corn technology and its associated refuge system.
