Invaluable guide to the theory and methods necessary for evaluating research in agriculture and for setting priorities in resource allocation.
"Not scarcity of food, but of funding for research has inspired Alston (agricultural and resource economics, U. of California-Davis), George W. Norton (agricultural and applied economics, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State U.) and Philip G. Pardey (applied economics, U. of Minnesota) to explain to research analysts and administrators some economic methods for evaluating and prioritizing research. They apply to agricultural research such tools as economic surplus analysis, economic techniques, mathematical programming procedures, and scoring models."--SciTech Book News
