PRODUCTION SYSTEMS COMPETITION AND THE PRICING OF INNOVATIONS: AN APPLICATION TO BIOTECHNOLOGY AND SEED CORN - Descarga este documento en PDF. Documentación en PDF para descargar gratis. Disponible también para leer online.

Farmers now choose production systems rather than individual inputs. This change may limit biotechnology innovation rents. We model a corn farmer's production choice among four systems: traditional, herbicide-resistant, insect resistant, and high-oil. We compare actual seed and chemical prices to the maximum rent the biotechnology firm can obtain.
