Abstract: The analysis presented in this manuscript complements and expands a study published in this journal by Carpenter (2010), highlighting the differences between GM traits in developing and developed countries regarding gross margins, yields and production costs. We conclude that GM adopters perform economically better than non-adopters mainly due to higher yields obtained by GM crops when compared to conventional crops, despite production costs being generally higher for those growing the GM variety.
