FUCK, Marcos Paulo and BONACELLI, Maria Beatriz Machado. Public research agenda in face of possibilities for agricultural development.Translated byLeticia Cesarino. Estud.soc.agric. [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1413-0580.
Recent advances in biotechnology have altered the roles performed by public and private sectors in the process of agricultural research. Unlike what occurred during the Green Revolution, the private sector has been the main actor in this "new phase" of agricultural research. On the other hand, the Public Agricultural Research Institutes (PARIs) have made efforts to keep up with such advances and, in certain cases, even anticipate them. Certain PARIs are also working with different types of research. Considering the diversity of technological possibilities, the plurality of strategies has become an interesting option to PARIs.
