Abstract

Brazil has one of the world's most dynamic economies, with sustained high growth since 1964. The agricultural sector has made a substantial contribution to this. Much of the growth here has been acheved by increasing the cropped area with relatively modest increases in yield.

This paper analyzes overall growth performance of this sector and provides estimates of supply functions for 19 commodities. These estimates are based primarily on time series data over the period 1964-1977.

The results form a basis for the agricultural production module whch is used in the Brazil general equilibrium planning model.
