PARRE, José Luiz  and  GUILHOTO, Joaquim José Martins. A desconcentração regional do agronegócio brasileiro. Rev. Bras. Econ. [online]. 2001, vol.55, n.2, pp.223-251. ISSN 1806-9134.

This paper studies the importance of the Brazilian agribusiness for the economy as a whole and for the country's five macroregions. This is done for the years of 1985, 1990, and 1995, using a set of interregional input-output tables constructed for those years. The main findings of the paper are: there was a decrease in the agribusiness concentration among the regions and their components (inputs, agricultural production, processing, and distribution); the share of the Southeast region (the most developed of the Brazilian regions) decreased from 46% in 1985 to 41.2% in 1995; the share of the Brazilian agribusiness in the GDP, and in the regions' GRP, decreased, e.g., the Brazilian share reduced from 38.6% in 1985 to 30.4% in 1995; the structure of the agribusiness is specific to each region and to its level of development.

Keywords : agronegócio; insumo-produto; desenvolvimento regional.
