Socio-economic Impacts of Genetically Modified Corn In the Philippines


This book attempts to unravel how GM corn has changed the landscape of corn farming in the country. Perhaps, the socio-economic changes brought about by GM corn would serve as “late lessons from early warning”. We hope that agriculture policy makers will open up their eyes and minds to develop policy responses in favor of small scale farmers in the light of the new evidences. This research is very timely as other GM crops, such as Bt eggplant and golden rice, are in the process of testing towards commercialization.
