Surprisingly, labour expenditures did not parallel insecticide use patterns, even though insecticide application was one of the main labour costs of cotton production. In all 3 years, use of Bt cotton resulted in increased yield and reduced amounts of insecticide, although this reduction in insecticide use appeared to decline over time. , 2003). , 2006). Using an econometric model, the authors confirmed that farmers benefited substantially from Bt cotton during 1999–2001, having a higher net revenue of US$121/ ha.
