PICANCO FILHO, Artêmio Ferreira and MARIN, Joel Orlando Bevilaqua. Suggar-cane supply agreement: the power asymmetry betweem agents. Interações (Campo Grande) [online]. 2012, vol.13, n.2, pp.191-202. ISSN 1518-7012. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1518-70122012000200006.
The aim of this work is to analyze the agreements dealt between the sugar-cane agribusiness and the sugar-cane suppliers for raw material supply based upon a case study in Goiás State, Brazil. The conclusion is that the sugar-cane agribusiness keeps the control on the information producing asymmetry in the social relationship forcing the raw material suppliers to accept its impositions keeping them linked to its interest due to absence of better economical options.
