This book provides principles for successful management of agricultural research. The study is a result of the author's quest to answer the question, 'Who sets the agricultural research agenda, and what are the points of intervention to bring about change?' MacKenzie argues that important principles should be observed in order to keep the freedom that is necessary for research investigation while also keeping a focus on relevant issues. His study, therefore, attempts to improve how science is applied to the public interest. At a time when science and agriculture are undergoing tremendous changes, Principles of Agricultural Research Management will provide readers with a detailed and thorough look at the relationship between agricultural research and society.
