In this paper, assess the impacts of genetically modified eggplant, Bt brinjal, on economic and health outcomes in Bangladesh using a cluster randomized controlled design. Bt brinjal cultivation reduces the cost of pesticide use by 47 percent.

The Bt brinjal impact evaluation is designed to provide a thorough understanding of the impact of uptake and adoption of the Bt brinjal technology among Bangladeshi farmers, mimicking as much as possible the real-world context of a roll-out.
