Spillover impacts of sorghum research uri icon

abstract

  • A technological breakthrough in agriculture often leads to increased yields, or improves the qualityof output, or enhances the efficiency of input use. If the new technology has applicability beyondthe confines of the location for which it was generated, or beyond the commodity for which it wasdeveloped, such an effect is commonly referred to as spillover effects. A review (Deb and Bantilan2001) of the spillover impacts of agricultural research has covered the evolution of the conceptover time, different types of spillovers dealt in literature and techniques to quantify spilloverimpacts by different studies on the subject
