Abstract: Standardized tools for valuation of agricultural technologies developed in National Agricultural Research System of India are featured in this study with a generalised framework. A valuation pyramid with several levels of qualitative and quantitative approaches was designed. The new framework was articulated by a case study on production of Chitin & Chitosan from crustacean waste, a technology of Central Institute of Fisheries Technology, Kochi. The value of the novel technology was calculated using various methods, customized for the specific domain. With few suppositions at every level of the process flow, the value worth of the technology was calculated using different methods. This system attempts to deliver a valuation practice which is suitable for most of the technologies coming up in the public agricultural research system.
