DETERMINANTS OF Bt CORN (Zea mays L.) ADOPTION IN CAGAYAN VALLEY, PHILIPPINES

Rey C. Naval, Fredisminda M. Dolojan.

Abstract
Corn production in the Philippines is important as many farmers depend on corn farming as their main livelihood. Corn production contributed over 100 billion pesos annually on the country’s economy. However, in the early 1990s, the production of corn in the country is threatened by Asian corn borer (Ostrinia furnaculis Guenee) which significantly reduce yield. To solve the problem, the use of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) corn gene which is resistant to stem borer was introduced thereby bringing sustainable increasing production. However, despite technology’s effectiveness, there are always factors which motivate or dismay farmers to adopt and these need to be known. The study utilized the 1,279 corn farmers in Cagayan Valley to determine the factors that influence their adoption of Bt corn technology. Using a logistic regression model, the results showed that a set of demographic profile and farm characteristics influenced the farmer’s decision to adopt the technology. The government should consider these factors to scale up the farmers’ adoption of the technology to ensure sustainable production to cater the rising demand on corn in the country and world today. Further study may be conducted to identify other factors contributory to the adoption of the technology.

Key words: Adoption, Bacillus thuringiensis, Bt, corn production, Logistic Regression
