Webinar: Agricultural Research Policy in High-Income Countries

Date: Tuesday, June 5, 2018
Time: 1:00 p.m. EDT
Duration: 1 hour
Host: Paul Heisey

Investment in research is a primary driver of productivity growth in agriculture. Over the past 25 years or more, public investment in agricultural research in high-income countries has grown slowly and declined in recent years.  At the same time, private sector investment, as well as public investment in developing countries, have grown much more rapidly.  In this webinar, ERS economist Paul Heisey discusses the role of research in agricultural productivity growth in high-income countries, current and long-term trends in research funding, and changes in public agricultural research policy that have accompanied funding shifts.  This webinar is based on the report, Agricultural Research Investment and Policy Reform in High-Income Countries.
