Bt cotton in India: controversy visited. Sudarshan, I. and Lalitha, N. Indian Journal of Agricultural Economics, 57(3):459-466, Indian Society of Agricultural Economics, 2002.
abstract   bibtex   
Following an overview of the US experience with Bt cotton, this paper discusses the issues relating to the introduction of the transgenic crop in India and the controversies surrounding it. The purpose of the paper is not to suggest that India should shun this technology, but to tread cautiously especially in the context of lack of transparency, coordination and monitoring by certifying authorities in adapting a new technology like the transgenic seeds, which has definite implications for India.
