Abstract

Since the Second World War, Brazilian agriculture has undergone a transformation from a land-intensive cultivation structure to a system driven by productivity. The transformation has taken place within three distinct phases: import-substitution based industrialization that neglected agriculture; conservative modernization of agriculture due to the realization that food supply cannot be increased through area expansion; and more open policy. Industrialization and rural-urban migration within the economy created conditions conducive to stronger demand for food and a higher opportunity cost of labour. Agricultural policy provided the basis for this remarkable structural transformation. (The rest omitted)
