Empirical Evidence Adoption In Developed Countries

The empirical research on genetically modified (GM) technology adoption in the developed world focuses on several areas including identifying the factors that lead to farmer acceptance of these new technologies, the patterns of adoption, and associated impacts. This research supports the findings of theoretical adoption models concerning the influence of the nature of innovations and farmer heterogeneity (e.g., farm size, access to credit, uncertainty, and risk) on farmer acceptance and in turn, on the distribution and diffusion of technologies in both the developed and developing world.
