Evaluation of the Strategic Research Program (SRP) and Agriculture Development Fund - Final Report

This evaluation of the Agriculture Development Fund (ADF) and Strategic Research Program (SRP) was commissioned by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture (SMA) to investigate two major areas: (1) Assess the policy rationale for public sector intervention in support of agricultural research and development (R&D), including possible gaps in programming; and (2) Estimate the economic returns to ADF and SRP expenditures, using a benefit-cost analysis technique appropriate for R&D programs, and in particular to ensure that Saskatchewan's investment in these two programs was justified.
