Based on increased government support, agricultural R&D spending rose by roughly one-third during 2007–2012. At 6.5 percent, Oman’s agricultural research intensity ratio (investment in agricultural research as a share of agricultural GDP) is among the highest in the world, but such high ratios are not uncommon in countries with small populations and relatively high per capita income.

The number of agricultural researchers employed at Oman’s main agricultural and fisheries research agencies, DGALR and DGFR, increased substantially during 2009–2012, although most of the new recruits were only qualified to the BSc-degree level.

In addition to large capital investments in agricultural research infrastructure, the government demonstrated its commitment to agricultural R&D through a number of important policy and institutional changes, including the 2011 establishment of TRC and the 2012 enactment of STIP.
