Abstract: Abstract Agricultural science policy in the United States has profoundly affected the growth and development of agriculture worldwide, not just in the United States. Over the past 150 years, and especially over the second half of the 20th Century, public investments in agricultural R&D in the United States grew faster than the value of agricultural production. Public spending on agricultural science grew similarly in other more-developed countries, and collectively these efforts, along with private spending, spurred agricultural producproductivity growth in rich and poor nations alike.
