In collaboration with Glenn Davis Stone and Dominic Glover, this project investigates the impacts of genetically modified crops on indigenous knowledge in India and the Philippines. Rather than take a simplistic view of GM crops and development, this research focuses on how farmers are managing these crops within their farming system. This project is funded by the John Templeton Foundation (Glenn Davis Stone, PI).
