        The purpose of this paper is twofold: first, to take stock of the current state of knowledge about inclusive value-chain development (VCD) in the context of international agricultural research; and second, to draw out the implications for future research and action.,This paper is based on a review of recent research papers authored by professionals affiliated with international agricultural. The Green Revolution, or the Third Agricultural Revolution, is the set of research technology transfer initiatives occurring between and the late s, that increased agricultural production worldwide, beginning most markedly in the late s. The initiatives resulted in the adoption of new technologies, including High-Yielding Varieties (HYVs) of cereals, especially dwarf wheat and rice.

      (v) Research demands accurate observation and description. (vi) Research involves gathering new data from primary or first-hand sources or using existing data for a new purpose. (vii) Research is characterized by carefully designed procedures that apply rigorous analysis. (viii) Research involves the quest for answers to un-solved problems.   Modern agriculture is concentrated on a small number of varieties designed for intensive farming. This has dramatically reduced the diversity of plants available for research and development. This trend, and the increasing industrialization of agriculture, are key factors in what is known as “genetic erosion.”.

      Central to this story is a simplistic, linear view of agricultural innovation itself: scientists conduct controlled research in the lab or field, then publish or patent the results, which are then picked up by industry or government and made available to farmers, who benefit from improved crop varieties, greater productivity, and so on.   Government policies, research and subsidies largely promote modern commercial agriculture, often at the expense of traditional farming. In south-west China, where remaining areas of traditional agriculture are located, maize and rice staple crops have been highly commercialised, and the area cultivated with traditional varieties has rapidly.

Throughout the developing world, resource-poor farmers (about billion people) located in risk-prone, marginal environments, remain untouched by modern agricultural technology.

A new approach to natural resource management must be developed so that new management systems can be tailored and adapted in a site-specific way to highly variable.

Brady, former director general of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), wrote, “The most significant technological accomplishment of this century in international agriculture is the development of high-yielding cereal crop varieties.

Agricultural research holds a great potential for raising agricultural productivity and reducing poverty.
