Abstract

This paper examines trends in sourcing and allocation of public funds to providers of agricultural research in India over the past three decades. The paper also discusses the emerging policy issues for agricultural research in India in the light of the increasing role of markets, growing participation of the private sector in research, rapid advances in science, and strengthening of intellectual property rights. The need for and measures of addressing organizational rigidities, inefficiencies, and difficulties in sustaining funding are also discussed.
