Valuing New Random GM Traits: The Case of Drought Tolerant Wheat
There has been an increase in support for developing genetic modification (GM) technology in wheat. The purpose of this paper was to develop an analytical model to analyze the value of GM traits at different phases of development. To do so we developed a stochastic binomial model of real options. The results indicate that the value of drought tolerant wheat using GM technology is in-the-money at each phase of development. The greatest value would accrue to the Prairie Gateway and northern Great Plains regions in the United States.
