If you wish to expand your knowledge on agriculture or its related field, there are local and international publications available at the Agricutlural Training Institute's Agriculture and Fisheries Knowledge Resource Center like the Asian Biotechnology and Development Review (ABDR). This is a peer reviewed international journal that covers topics on socio-economic development, public policy, ethical and regulatory aspects of biotechnology that focuses on developing countries.

Particularly, this issue features four papers namely: The Emergence of the Biosimilars; Moratorium on Genetically Modified Brinjal in India; Perception of International Stakeholders on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs); and The future of Genetically Modified Crops.

The ADR also includes roundtable discussions on: IPR, Access to Technology and Policy Deliberation; and Resolving Legal Ambiguity related to IPR and Access to Technology in References to Seeds. As well as a book review on “Equitable Access to Human Biological Resources in Developing Countries: Benefits Sharing Without Undue Inducement” is too much to be ignored.

These are well-written papers that indicates the diversity and complexity of the topics related to biotechnology and socio-economic development.
