Economic Evaluation of Bollgard Cotton in Arkansas: 1997

Kelly J. Bryant, William C. Robertson and Gus M. Lorenz, III


In 1997, eight observations in four Arkansas counties provided data for the economic evaluation of Bollgard cotton varieties. The change in net income per acre of the Bt fields versus the non-Bt fields was determined by partial budgeting. Changes in net income ranged from a $327.35 per acre decrease to a $127.33 per acre increase. Five of the eight observations incurred smaller net incomes on the Bollgard fields. The eight observations averaged a $62.89 per acre decrease in net income attributable to the Bollgard varieties.
