Starting off a scientific research, facilities and resources are two of the limitations factor in scientific discoveries. In other words, funds are the fundamental aspect that will determine the flow of the whole research. In context of implementing newly discovered technology in Malaysia agricultural field, it is a must for the research to be highly profitable in a long term for the nation as a whole. Seeking for investors for this research might not be easy though, considering that this is not a fast profiting project. However, if you are an investor seeking into a long term profiting project, you might want to tune in to the video below.
The most likely funding body for this kind of project would be of government bodies and non-profitable organizations. Under the Malaysian Ministry of Agriculture and Agro based industry, there are 2 sources of funding provided for the agriculture biotechnology sector; Science Fund which supports R&D project and Techno Fund for the purpose of commercializing potential project. In this project, further research on the application of such technology upon local Malaysian food crops will be the first barrier to overcome. The outcome of the research would then determine whether the approach is applicable for other food crops available in Malaysia, and whether it is ready to be implemented.
