China’s ability to feed a population growing in both size and income has been impressive. This chapter examines China’s agricultural Research and Development (R∓D) and agricultural extension system. China’s agricultural R&D is a large public system, decentralized, and almost completely controlled by the government and based on public investment. China also has the largest agricultural extension system in the world. In recent years, extension reforms have focused on providing improved services to farmers and stimulating technology adoption by farmers. The impact of technology change on agricultural productivity is also discussed.

Keywords:   agricultural growth, agricultural policy, agricultural extension system, public investment
