|Abstract: ||Australian research and development organizations invest substantial grower and/ or
taxpayer (public) funds, on the control of weeds in broad-acre cropping using herbicide.
Benefits from this research are distributed between growers, consumers and the
agrichemical industry depending on the patent status of the technology adopted or
discarded due to the research. The size and allocation of the benefits from “public” R&D
affecting on-patent and off-patent herbicide use is analysed using economic surplus
techniques. The results indicate that herbicide patent status does not have important
implications for “public” R&D investment decisions.|
