Household agricultural strategies and agricultural development in a multi-ethnic municipio in southern Brazil

Household agricultural strategies and agricultural development in a multi-ethnic municipio in southern Brazil

Dissertation Abstracts International, A 41(7): p. 3168

The farmers in Guaira, Parana have migrated from Japan and Europe, as well as from the Brazilian northeast, centre-south and extreme south. This dissertation explores the factors that have contributed to agricultural development and to the successful adoption of modern techniques by small farmers in the region. It is found that factors in the local economic environment, including access to land and credit, influence household strategies regarding mechanization and choice of commercial crops.
