Universiti Putra Malaysia is an institution that has always been proactive in contributing ideas in the field of agriculture to both the government and community at large. Among these contributions include policy suggestions that are founded on the results of research and development conducted at UPM.
UPM established the Pusat Kajian Dasar Pertanian, PKDP or Agricultural Policy Research Centre in 1984. The centre provided a platform for researchers from various disciplines and stakeholders to conduct research and training in agricultural and development policies. PKDP was also involved in national and international seminars, conferences and workshops.
In 2005, Institut Kajian Dasar Pertanian dan Makanan , IKDPM or Agricultural and Food Policy Studies Institute (AFPSI) was established in response to the increased government emphasis on agriculture in the Malaysian economy.
