Rates Of Return To Public Agricultural Research In The Presence Of Research Spillovers

  • Yee, Jet
  • Huffman, Wallace E.

This study uses new state data to examine the contributions of public agricultural research, extension, and infrastructure to agricultural productivity. The estimated social rates of return (which take into account spillover effects) are high and imply a need for federal or regional institutions to coordinate public agricultural research funding.
