Abstract or Summary

This book presents the results of a series of ex-ante impact studies to assess potential economic impacts of bioengineered crops, namely: fruit and shoot borer-resistant (FSBR) eggplant (or Bt eggplant), papaya ring spot virus (PRSV) resistant papaya, and multiple-virus resistant tomato (MVR tomato) in the Philippines; and late blight-resistant potato (LBR potato), potato tuber moth-resistant potato (PTM or Bt potato), and multiple-virus resistant tomato (MVR tomato) in Indonesia. The studies, conducted from 2004 to 2006 with support from the Agricultural Biotechnology Support Project II (ABSPII), the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), and the International Potato Center (CIP, for Chapter 7), aimed in general to provide project leaders, funding agencies, policy makers, and other stakeholders with information to help them make rational resource allocation decisions and choices in supporting bioengineered crops development in Southeast Asia. ABSPII has completed the first five years conducting R&D activities in the Philippines and Indonesia to develop commercial bioengineered crop products that can help solve major pests and other problems in selected target commodities and countries. This book summarizes the projected level and distribution of costs and benefits associated with those activities and products, including the anticipated value of potential environmental impacts.
