asti country report

Although Uruguay has only a small number of agricultural R&D agencies, the intensity with which the country invests in agricultural R&D is comparatively high, especially by developing-country standards. In 1996 total agricultural R&D expenditure as a share of agricultural GDP was 1.7 percent.
