Science for Agriculture was the first thorough quantitative and analytical treatment of the history of the U.S. agricultural research system and as such has served as the foundation for research over the 10 years since its publication. The benefits from public and private investment in agricultural research are immense and should be understood by every student of the agricultural science system in the United States.

The second edition updates important landmarks, components, characteristics, and trends of the U.S. system for developing and applying science to increase the productivity and advancements of agriculture.

Science for Agriculture, 2e, is essential reading for agriculture educators and researchers, Land Grant administrators, food and agri–industry R&D and all others who need to understand the factors that will influence future public agricultural research policy.
