Abstract

A general equilibrium model is developed to analyze the welfare effects of transgenic technologies for both the irrigated and non-irrigated rice ecosystems in Asia. Drought resistance, a technology of particular importance to unfavorable environments, is worth as much as Bt rice, a technology of primary importance to favorable environments.
