Abstract: The system of international agricultural research centers has played a facilitating role in promoting a diversity of biological and institutional innovations in the Third World. These include germplasm collections and enhancements, new varieties of crops, changed agricultural and farming systems practices, and improved policies and institutional arrangements affecting agricultural sectors and their research infrastructures. As these centers work in collaboration with national research systems, perhaps the most important induced effect has been in enhancing the human capital of people working in these systems in the developing countries.
