Abstract or Summary
In 2014, the adoption of Bt cotton in India increased by 600,000 hectares to a record 11.6 million hectares, equivalent to a high adoption rate of 95% of 12.25 million hectares total cotton area. In 2014, India planted the largest ever area of cotton – 105,000 ha more than the previous record cotton area of 12.1 million ha in 2011. Thus, in 2014, India achieved a near– optimal adoption rate of 95% at the national level, and this was distributed evenly among the ten cotton growing States. The number of Bt cotton farmers increased to 7.7 million in 2014 from 7.3 million in 2013…….
