National wheat research in Ecuador: a case study



ISNAR Training Series ( 1): 210-241



The case of wheat research in Ecuador is used to highlight the need for adopting a systems approach to agricultural research management. The study focuses on research carried out by the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Agropecuarias (INIAP). It also notes the implications of agricultural policy measures, such as credit schemes and producer subsidies, for farmers' adoption of high yielding wheat varieties.
