Abstract: Intellectual property rights (IPR) are ideas, inventions, and creative expressions based on which there is a public willingness to bestow the status of property, while technology management seeks to foster effective and efficient use of developed technology. In a dynamic global environment with changing industry and competitor landscapes, management of technologies including effective commercialization strategies using the IPR advantages gathers utmost importance. In an agrarian country like India, the process of IP awareness can be catalysed only by educating the various stakeholders like policy makers, farmers, academia, industry, researchers and consumers about the importance of IPR and technology management. As Indian agriculture is attaining new vistas in development and agri-business is becoming increasingly global, it is time for a ‘fresh think’ to prevail in the IPR debate by creating much more awareness among academia, industry, policy makers and public. The initiatives taken on these lines by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) and other governmental and non-governmental agencies are explained in this paper. A paradigm shift in agri-education policies is envisaged to build the capacity of agricultural professionals in view of dynamic changes in IPR and technology management areas.
