FACTORS AFFECTING THE LIKELIHOOD OF CORN ROOTWORM BT SEED ADOPTION

The likelihood of adopting corn rootworm (CRW) Bt seed technology was analyzed using an ordered logit model. Data used to estimate the model came from USDA’s 2001 Agricultural Resource Management Survey. Statistically significant variables include operator age, farm type, farm size, rootworm loss and current treatment for rootworm, off farm labor, and Bt technology for corn borer. The likelihood of adoption was not related to crop rotation, tillage system, new variant CRW region, or education.
