Understanding the nature and dimensions of the world food problem and the policies available to alleviate it has been the focal point of the IIASA Food and Agriculture Program since it began in 1977.

National food systems are highly interdependent, and yet the major policy options exist at the national level. Therefore, to explore these options, it is necessary both to develop policy models for national economies and to link them together by trade and capital transfers. For greater realism the models in this scheme are being kept descriptive, rather than normative. In the end it is proposed to link models to twenty countries, which together account for nearly 80 per cent of such important agricultural attributes as area, production, population, exports, and imports.

This report presents the results of work on the agricultural production module for Brazil; it is part of the work devoted to building an agricultural policy model for that country. As understanding supply responses to various possible policy instruments is a critical part of much of agricultural policy analysis, this work is a significant element of the IIASA agricultural policy model for Brazil.
