Summary: This paper examines the collaboration efforts in Chile between the National Agricultural Research System (NARS) and the International Agricultural Research Centers (IARCs). Divided into three primary sections, the first section provides an overview of NARS. The second section, discusses the impact of IARCs on NARS, and finally, the last section discusses research impacts on agricultural production. It is concluded that IARCs have had a positive impact through the provision of biological materials, training and staff exchanges, promotion of international contacts and assistance in research techniques. IARCs have also helped with the development of adopted foreign technologies such as machinery, pesticides and irrigation equipment. Although this has yet to translate into agricultural production increases, the recent changes in pricing and foreign trade policies provide favorable conditions. The research generated technologies, however, must be effectively adopted by farmers.
