Resource accumulation and economies of scale in agriculture: the case of Sao Paulo, Brazil

Resource accumulation and economies of scale in agriculture: the case of Sao Paulo, Brazil

Dissertation Abstracts International, A 34(5): 2133

The general objective was to analyze the impact of agricultural policies on resource accumulation and economic efficiency of crop farms in Sao Paulo. A cross-section sample of 382 farms from the Ribeirao Preto area was taken in 1970; they displayed considerable size variability and specialized in livestock, annual or perennial crops. Two analytical techniques were utilized. An historical descriptive analysis traced capital investment patterns on the sample farms during the 1960s.
