Subject Term:
adoption, biotechnology, dairy, farmers, farming methods, social factors, genetic engineering
Notes:
"Results show that larger farmers, with more productivity technologies, and with younger, more educated farmers, are more likely to adopt rbST. While rbST is shown to significantly increase milk production, there is no evidence that it increases profits on a per cow basis."
