2. International and National Agricultural Research Systems have an immediate responsibility to see that their research reaches the ultimate users, viz. farmers, food processors, fishermen, and so on, in an easily understandable format. 3. But, agricultural scientists publish their research output in journals in thousands of professional peer-reviewed journals in journals that have set financial-firewalls to provide access Hence, the primary research information, from which contents have to be derived and tailored for the key stakeholders, is largely inaccessible and highly scattered 4. No. Country Publication year 2004 % share of world output in 2004 Publication year 2008 % share of world output in 2008 % change from 2004 to 2008 World 2,06,490 3,27,759 58.00 1 USA 35,925 17.40 52,980 16.16 -1.23 2 China 15,193 7.36 39,173 11.95 4.59 3 India 14,543 7.04 22,331 6.81 -0.23 4 Japan 9,897 4.79 11,953 3.65 -1.15 5 United Kingdom 9,702 4.70 13,195 4.03 -0.67 6 Brazil 9,598 4.65 16,084 4.91 0.26 7 Germany 7,668 3.71 10,199 3.11 -0.60 8 Italy 6,345 3.07 8,911 2.72 -0.35 9 Canada 6,009 2.91 8,758 2.67 -0.24 10 France 5,835 2.83 8,530 2.60 -0.22 11 Australia 5,483 2.66 8,016 2.45 -0.21 12 South Korea 3,338 1.62 4,876 1.49 -0.13 13 Mexico 2,212 1.07 3,023 0.92 -0.15 14 Taiwan 1,825 0.88 3,279 1.00 0.12 15 New Zealand 1,625 0.79 2,047 0.63 -0.16 16 South Africa 1,545 0.75 2,238 0.68 -0.07 17 Pakistan 1,401 0.68 1,979 0.60 -0.08 18 Israel 1,147 0.56 1,513 0.46 -0.09 19 Thailand 851 0.41 2,355 0.72 0.31 5.

Open Access to the primary agricultural information is key for ICT innovations in agriculture I is the backbone of ICTs for development Open Access is the only solution 8. http://oar.icrisat.org From May 2011 Oct 2012 the repository witnessed More than 1,30,000 downloads from more than 60 countries About 6,000 unique visitors every month OA to research output through interoperable institutional repository is simple, effective and certain to enhance visibility and impact of our work. It is inexpensive. ICRISAT spends only $60 every month to maintain this repository. 9. http://dataverse.icrisat.org/dvn 10. Open access to information and data is key and that will ignite crowd-sourced knowledge snippets Agropedia will see more wikis repurposed from open research information and data available on the web Credible agro-advisory systems will evolve Selective dissemination will be very easy with the gamut of gadgets
