Long-run and Global R&D Funding Trajectories: The U.S. Farm Bill in a Changing Context

Publication Date: October, 2015

We present new evidence that today's middle-income countries—notably China, Brazil, and India— are not only growing in relative importance as producers of agricultural innovations through investments in public R&D, they are also gaining considerable ground in terms of their share of privately performed research of relevance for agriculture.

Research Investment Implications of Shifts in the Global Geography of Wheat Stripe Rust

Publication Date: October, 2015

Comparing the cost of developing stripe-rust-resistant varieties of wheat with the cost of stripe-rust-induced yield losses, we estimate that a sustained annual research investment of at least US$32 million into stripe rust resistance is economically justified.

Rethinking Yield Gaps

Publication Date: April, 2015

We clarify the terminology surrounding yield gaps, show that closing yield gaps is not necessarily economic, and conclude that food security will be better served by policies that directly enhance the productive capacity of agriculture to supply affordable food efficiently and sustainably.

The Potential Distribution of Invading Helicoverpa Armigera in North America: Is It Just a Matter of Time?

Publication Date: March, 2015

Helicoverpa armigera has recently invaded South and Central America, and appears to be spreading rapidly. We update a previously developed potential distribution model to highlight the global invasion threat, with emphasis on the risks to the United States.
