About this book

Research is never free of pressures and constraints and to understand its results properly these have to be assessed and analyzed. In agriculture, research into biotechnology and GMOs, as well as pesticides and herbicides, is big business - agribusiness. This book looks at the crucial roles of funding and the political context on the research agenda and its results in agricultural development. It provides a critical evaluation of the participatory methods now widely used and explores the ways in which research into biotechnology have reflected the interests of the various parties involved.


Introduction; What Drives Agricultural Research?; Origins and Development of Research Systems; Transferring Technocracies; Agribusiness and Biotechnology; The Rise and Rise of Participation; A Compromised Participation; Bibliography, Index
