About this book

Although new technologies to improve agricultural production are constantly being devised, there is a great need to manage their development and implementation more effectively if they are to have a significant impact. In the 1990s, International Service for National Agricultural Research has been holding seminars and developing expertise in the management of agricultural biotechnology programmes. This book provides information and case studies on the range of key managerial issues involved. It includes syntheses and review chapters, as well as case studies from a range of countries including Chile, India, Japan and the Philippines. The book consists of 24 chapters written by authorities from North, Central and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia and is written in a style that should appeal to practising managers as well as to academics.


Agricultural biotechnology - management and policy considerations; setting and implementing priorities; managing resources; ensuring environmental responsibility; managing intellectual property, proprietary science and technology transfer; sources of information. (Part contents).
