The research suggests that Gujarati farmers were highly proactive in obtaining information about different cotton varieties and associated risks. Water and electricity were limiting conditions when it came to choosing Bt varieties over non-Bt varieties, and legal Bt varieties over illegal Bt varieties.

This open access book is about understanding the processes involved in the transformation of smallholder rice farming in the Lower Mekong Basin from a low-yielding subsistence activity to one producing the surpluses needed for national self-sufficiency and a high-value export industry. For centuries, farmers in the Basin have regarded rice as “white gold”, reflecting its centrality to their food security and well-being. In the past four decades, rice has also become a commercial crop of great importance to Mekong farmers, augmenting but not replacing its role in securing their subsistence. This book is based on collaborative research to (a) compare the current situation and trajectories of rice farmers within and between different regions of the Lower Mekong, (b) explore the value chains linking rice farmers with new technologies and input and output markets within and across national borders, and (c) understand the changing role of government policies in facilitating the on-going evolution of commercial rice farming. An introductory section places the research in geographical and historical context. Four major sections deal in turn with studies of rice farming, value chains, and policies in Northeast Thailand, Central Laos, Southeastern Cambodia, and the Mekong Delta. The final section examines the implications for rice policy in the region as a whole.

Throughout the '70s and '80s, the Highland fishing village of Ullapool was a tough place to make a living. Renowned for its lawlessness, it was no place for the squeamish. In the summer of 1989, a local man named Chris Howarth met an expatriate Scot who offered him some work, and set in motion a chain of events that would lead to what would be the UK's largest ever drugs haul. Around the same time, working on a tip-off from a local informant and intelligence from their Spanish counterparts, Customs and Excise became aware of a major plot to smuggle huge amounts of drugs into the UK around Ullapool. As a result of this information, Operation Klondyke was born. The trail would lead from Ullapool and the east coast of Scotland to the Costa del Sol, Gibraltar, and Venezuela. It would uncover distribution channels from Colombia's notorious Cali cartel to Europe and North America, operated by ruthless Spanish smuggling outfits. White Gold tells the inside story of Operation Klondyke through the eyes of both the hunters and the hunted.
