Maize productivity in Brazil: evolution and differences by state

Maize productivity in Brazil: evolution and differences by state

Agricultura em Sao Paulo 43(2): 117-135

The paper analyses the development of maize production in the main producing states of Brazil and seeks to establish differences between them in terms of productivity in order to cast light on each state's potential and limitations. The analysis is based on crop data from 1961 to 1995 for Goias, Sao Paulo, Parana, Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina (in declining order of growth rate). The average growth rate for the period was 1.97%.
