Abstract: The coincidence between the take-off of the Portuguese economy in the 1950s and a great deal of political and legislative measures taken by the Estado Novo and applied on the sector of forest during the 1930s and the 1940s, brings up the question of knowing until what point those measures had or had not structural aims. That is, if this last search to break up and correct the main factors that blocked the agricultural modernization - such as weak mechanization, the inedaquate size of farms, the wrong use of the soils - and create the strategic resources for the industrialization of the country. This paper aims at making a preliminary analysis of the most important agricultural policy measures of the Estado Novo, the 'Plano de Povoamento Florestal' (1930-68), and evaluate its contribution for the evolution of productivity and product in the agricultural sector, allowing Portuguese modem economic growth.
