Africa has neglected agriculture and agricultural technology development and transfer (TDT) over the past twenty years. Agricultural production per capita declined by 22percent from 1971 to 1984, and the share of African government spending devoted to agricultural TDT declined by 37percent from 1971 to 1991.
