Public and private expenditure in agricultural research in 2000

Despite the high stakes, funding for research in agriculture and agricultural science has for decades only represented 7% of government research budgets. While Southern countries have made a greater effort (20% of their research budgets), most funding is provided by Northern countries, which dedicate only 5% of their research budgets to the subject. In recent years, many commitments have been made to reverse this trend, which are awaiting realization.
