USDA: investment in ag research declining in the U.S., EU, rising in China, India and Brazilqrcode

Favorites Print Sep. 15, 2017
U.S. public sector funding for agricultural R&D is falling, both in absolute terms and relative to major countries and regions. 
 
Between 1990 and 2013, the U.S. share of spending among nations with major public agricultural R&D investments fell from about 23 to 13 percent. 
 
This decline was driven by a combination of falling U.S. spending (lately mirrored in Western Europe) and rapidly rising spending in developing countries such as India and, especially, China. 
 
Chinese government spending on agricultural R&D rose nearly eightfold in real (inflation-adjusted) terms between 1990 and 2013, surpassing U.S. spending in 2008 and more than doubling it in 2013. 
 
In simple dollar terms, the decline in U.S. public sector funding has been more than offset by a rise in U.S. private research spending, but the two are not substitutes, as each tends to specialize in different kinds of R&D.
