Recent panorama of sugarcane in Brazil: aspects of spatial convergence in production

L. Siqueira De Castro

No 276014, 2018 Conference, July 28-August 2, 2018, Vancouver, British Columbia from International Association of Agricultural Economists

Abstract: Introduced in the sixteenth century in Brazil, the sugarcane crop was and remains important for national economic growth, raising different regions over time. Thus, this study aims to analyze the spatial distribution of sugarcane in Brazil, through the spatial convergence of land productivity of this crop in the micro-regional level, between the years 1980 and 2010. Results show the existence of spatial β convergence for the proposed period. With velocities and convergence rates considered moderate, it is expected to reduce the regional disparity in sugarcane planting in the long term.
