The ambivalence of Latin American agriculture

What has happened in rural development in recent years means that one must be very chary of the traditional view that agriculture lacks dynamism and is incapable of responding effectively to economic stimuli. On the contrary, output has grown steadily, export agriculture has expanded, the level of technology used has risen and the organization of production has been changing, and all this is closely linked to substantial changes in the make-up and outlook of the agents of production, and notably to the presence of a new rural entrepreneurial class.
