Agriculture in Brazil and Argentina Developments and Prospects for Major Field Crops

Abstract: "This report identifies key factors underlying the agricultural productivity growth and enhanced international competitiveness of Brazil and Argentina in the past decade. Economic and policy reforms, infrastructure development, and enhanced use of agricultural inputs that drove output growth during the 1990s are discussed. This report also compares Brazilian, Argentine, and U.S. soybean production costs and evaluates the combined impact of production, marketing, and transportation costs on the overall export competitiveness of each country's soybean producers. Finally, the outlook for continued growth in output and exports of key commodities is assessed".

Bittersweet Harvests for Global Supermarkets

Challenges in Latin America's Argicultural Export Boom.

Abstract: "Thanks to liberalized trade and development strategies with Latin America and the Caribbean, U.S. grocery stores now offer exotic fresh produce virtually year round. While this boom in "non-traditional " agroexports is yielding impressive economic returns for South American Producers, it is also exacting a price: farm workers' failing health, social and economic inequity, and environmental degradation.  Bittersweet Harvest is the first book to chronicle in detail both the benefits and shortcoming of trade and structural adjustment policies promoted throughout Latin America and the Caribbean during the 1980s. Drawing on empirical research and face-to-face discussions with small farmers, farmworkers, and government policymakers in Latin America. Bittersweet Harvest includes specific recommendations for guiding non-traditional agroexport policies onto a more sustainable path".

Authors: Lori Ann Thrupp, Gilles Bergeron and William F. Waters.
