Policy, Technology, and Efficiency of Brazilian Agriculture
Nicholas Rada (au); Costanza Valdes (au)
The Brazilian agricultural sector has been transformed from a traditional system of production with low use of modern technologies to a world agricultural leader. That transformation occurred as the country moved away from import-substitution policies äóî which nurtured domestic industrial development at the expense of agriculture äóî toward market-oriented policy reforms. These reforms included openness to foreign trade and foreign investment and the use of new technologies, which led to a new growth pattern. This report presents the ¥åndings of a study that focuses on the effect of Braziläó»s science and technology investments and other public policies on farm production. The ¥åndings indicate that agricultural research bene¥åts have been most rapidly adopted by the most ef¥åcient farms, widening the productivity gap between these farms and average farms. That gap, however, has been narrowed through other public policies, such as rural credit and infrastructure investments, that favor average producers. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
