Abstract or Summary
This study was conducted to analyze the dynamics of adoption and uptake pathways of biotech crops among small-scale, resource-poor farmers and the changes these have brought about in the farmers’ lives. It is focused on biotech corn, the only approved biotech crop for commercialization in the country at the time of study. Adoption here refers to how the famers acquire and eventually apply the knowledge and practices pertaining to the planting of biotech corn. Uptake pathway refers to the process that captures how biotech corn is introduced, adopted, disseminated, and shared by the farmers to others.
