Cover for Economic benefits from innovation.

Most soyabean farmers use chemical fungicides and resistant cultivars to limit yield losses from disease when they expect damage from pathogens to exceed the economic injury level. The suppliers of such inputs actively invest in R&D to regularly improve them by developing more efficient genetic ...
