U.S. Public Agricultural Research: Changes in Funding Sources and Shifts in Emphasis, 1980-2005
David Schimmelpfenning (au); Paul Heisey (au)
Over the years, proposals have recommended shifting the focus of public ag. res. from applied to basic research, and giving higher priority to peer-reviewed, competitively funded grants. The public ag. res. system in the U.S. is a Fed.-State partnership, with most res. conducted at State institutions. In recent years, State funds have declined, USDA funds have remained fairly steady, but funding from other Fed. agencies and the private sector has increased. Along with shifts in funding sources, the proportion of basic res. being undertaken within the public ag. research system has declined. This report focuses on the way public ag. res. is funded in the U.S. and how changes in funding sources over the last 25 years reflect changes in the type of res. pursued.
