Academic Perspectives on Agribusiness: An International Survey

Through an international survey of agricultural economists, we shed new light on perceptions about agribusiness education, research, grantsmanship, and outreach. Results indicate that de-partments expect agribusiness faculty to teach more courses, yet maintain research expecta-tions for agribusiness faculty similar to those of their non-agribusiness peers. As a result, agri-business faculty have lowered their engagement in agribusiness extension programs. Moreover, evidence suggests an increasing trend in the amount of grant dollars obtained and the number of refereed publications reported at the time of tenure evaluation, while the number of non-refereed publications has declined. Finally, results indicate that specialized journals, such as the IFAMR, have improved their importance as outlets for agribusiness research.
