Abstract

This paper seeks to contribute to the genetically engineered crop debates by exploring some social dimensions of new agricultural technologies. After assessing the social dimensions of current GE crops as they relate to agricultural research and development, we examine issues related to farmer adoption of GE crops. We conclude with a discussion on obstacles to socially equitable agricultural innovation and potential policy solutions. We contend that failing to consider these social dimensions of technology development and diffusion are likely to generate unforeseen problems and unsustainable technological developments.
