Rice varietal improvement and international exchange of rice germplasm



Rice varietal improvement and international exchange of rice germplasm



Impact of rice research: 51-82



A review of the economic studies of rice research programmes is presented and an identification of the contributions of rice varietal improvement to changes in rice productivity made. Studies estimating rates of return to investment in crop improvement research are described. In particular the economic contribution of INGER (the International Network for Genetic Evaluation of Rice) is assessed.
