The backlash against the introduction of genetically modified (GM) crops and the concern about contamination of non-GM crops by genetic material originating from GM crops has resulted in a complex and costly legal and physical arrangement for coexistence of GM and non-GM agricultural product systems. It has also led to a new broad body of research on various aspects of co-existence. This chapter aims to understand some of the economic forces that lead to the need for co-existence, and to develop welfare economics-based mechanisms to solve it.
