Resource allocation in agricultural research



Resource allocation in agricultural research



Sri Lanka, Postgraduate Research Institute of Agriculture: Agricultural research management in Sri Lanka Proceedings of a training seminar on agricultural research management organized by the Postgraduate Institute of Agriculture with support from the South East Asian Regional Centre for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture SEARCA, Philippines, 28-29 June 1976: 38-54



The critical role of research in resource planning is underlined. Reference is made to Chinese experiences with transfer of technology. Empirical studies have suggested a high return on investment in research. However, in allocation of research funds, agriculture has to compete with health, education, etc. and is often given a low priority. The case of Sri Lanka is cited. The evidence points to a significant increase in productivity despite relatively low levels of investment in research.
