TAC Secretariat overview of the role of factor- as opposed to commodity-oriented research in the CGIAR System. It notes that three centers, IBPGR, IFPRI, and ILRAD are factor rather than commodity oriented, and commodity centers also study factors. The issue is not whether to do factor research, but which factors to chose and how best to do it. TAC had identified water management, plant and pest diseases, and plant nutrition as priority areas for consideration. Agenda document, TAC 23rd Meeting, February 1980.
