Corn grower change for climate change: ex-ante economic analysis of adoption of enhanced root traits
Sustainable agriculture technologies of enhanced root corn possess the potential to offset more than half of the greenhouse gas emissions of the transportation sector if completely diffused. Weather variability resulting from climate change is predicted to decrease agricultural productivity. Enhanced corn root traits aim to mitigate and adapt to climate change by improving drought tolerance and soil quality and increasing carbon sequestration rates. Encouraging adoption is challenging among heterogeneous corn growers in an enormous market. Previous research on farmer preferences around four ...
