Abstract

Agricultural research is generally accepted as an important means of raising agricultural productivity in Africa. However, compared to alternative investments, most donors, due to budgetary constraints, often consider agricultural research as being an expensive activity with few visible results. Thus, securing funds for agricultural research is no longer as easy as it was in the past. National as well as international agricultural research institutions are challenged to answer questions about the effectiveness of their research products and demonstrate a visible socioeconomic impact of new technologies.
