Successful scientists were given considerable freedom to accept projects that may have never been part of the original research agenda. Once a scientist secured enough operational funds, he or she could work quite independently. Thus, the responsibility of searching for operational funds, shifted from administrators to scientists, who soon found themselves doing both jobs; securing the funds and executing the work. Obviously, this new system greatly decreased the productivity of scientists, who soon found themselves spending a considerable amount of time making contacts, writing project proposals, and, if they were successful, writing technical progress and annual reports for both the donors and their own institutions.
USAID follows the dictates of the Secretary of State and, therefore, its agenda includes “the expansion of democracy and free markets”. Bilateral technical and financial assistance are often directed towards developing countries that are under the sphere of influence of the donor country. However, USAID assistance includes sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and the Near East, Latin America, and Europe-Eurasia. USAID used to have a large technical staff, but now relies on US universities and other US institutions to provide technical support in developing countries (Wortman and Cummings, 1997).
And it is precisely the disarticulation and downsizing of crop production programmes at NARIs and IARCs, which is the reason why farmers had to fend for themselves without technical assistance or new improved varieties. As crop production problems increased for most farmers in the 1990s, the gap left by the crop production scientists was rapidly filled by the agro-chemical companies that could thus increase the sale of their products to combat the biotic and abiotic problems that constantly evolve to affect crop production around the world.
