Funding for agricultural research grew rapidly from the 1950s until the late 1970s, generating substantial growth in agricultural productivity. Since then, the rate of growth in public spending in many developed economies has subsided. At the same time, institutional changes have been implemented and incentives for private research and public-private partnerships have been strengthened. These changes have implications for agricultural research and its funding.
