Abstract

Genetically modified (GM) rice has not yet been commercialized anywhere in the world but may soon be available. We estimate that the economic gains to California growers from adoption of GM rice could be around $70 per acre. Besides the agronomic and economic benefits to the grower, there are significant environmental benefits for California.
