    Abstract

    Preocupamo-nos com uma abordagem teórica mesoanalítica com a qual se possa esclarecer como o Sistema de Produção Agroindustrial de Frutas Tropicais Nativas e Exóticas venha a ter sucesso em termos de desenvolvimento autosustentavel e de longo prazo. Ponderando-se (em simulação) o grau de influência de dezesseis Elementos do Sistema (considerados como potencialmente de sucesso) sobre problemas (Desafios) enfrentados pelas Cadeias de Produção Agroindustrial do Umbu (Preservação Ambiental, Escala de Oferta, Escala de Demanda e Nível Tecnológico), concordou-se tentativamente que tecnologia é o fator de produção que em maior peso pode contribuir para o referido sucesso. Também exploramos a aplicação das diversas políticas costumeiramente consideradas no enfrentamento de problemas existentes nos diversos segmentos da cadeia de produção. Finalmente apresentamos sugestões de como valorizar a tecnologia ou o ramo da ciência e tecnologia na aglutinação de forças da sociedade em prol do desenvolvimento do Sistema de Produção Agroindustrial de Frutas Tropicais Nativas e Exóticas.-------------------------------This paper deals with the problem of how the agribusiness of native and exotic tropical fruits in the State of Bahia, Brazil, can obtain sustainable development in the long run.The results of a simulation study on the impact of sixteen selected variables, named elements of success, relating to four known problems or barriers to the development of the fruit agribusiness, showed technology to be the main factor that can contribute to the success of this agribusiness. A complementary study was carried out on the use of the usual development policies to solve development bottlenecks that exist on the agribusiness production chains “cadeias de produção”. Finally suggestions are made on how to capitalize on the power of technology and/or the branch of science and technology to insure the development of native and exotic tropical fruit agribusiness.
