Recognizing that technological progress is a necessary ingredient of development, the World Bank has invested substantial resources in agricultural research and extension. This review is divided into two parts to examine Bank-supported projects that were operational in the 1980s and early 1990s. The first part focuses on agricultural extension, highlighting the extension subsector and an overview of Bank lending, the impact of extension investments, and regional performance. The second part looks at agricultural research. Chapters address investment issues, Bank lending, and portfolio performance and present conclusions and recommendations.
