The welfare benefits from potential rice yield-enhancing and water-saving research programs and their distributional implications under alternative farm program provisions are compared. This is done in an ex ante surplus maximization framework by using a multiregional, price endogenous mathematical programming model of U.S. agriculture. The simulation results indicate that government price support policies have profound impacts on the distribution of research benefits and distort interest group incentives and rankings for allocation of resources to research.
