Policies for Private Agricultural Research in Asian Developing Countries

Public research in developing countries in Asia continues to grow, but in many countries the rate of change has slowed and it is lower than growth in agriculture. In Asia, private sector research grew twice as fast as public research (see Table 1). Using a new set of data on private research, this paper identifies the policies that encouraged growth in private agricultural research in the developing countries of Asia from 1985 to the late 1990s and suggests a few others which might have helped. This can provide guidance to policy makers in other developing countries who must develop agricultural science and technology policies in the shadows of globalization and the emergence of 'Life Science' corporations.
