    O presente artigo procura mostrar quais são os fatores que levam os produtores rurais de Mato Grosso a plantar a soja transgênica em detrimento da convencional, uma vez que a adoção da soja RR traz mudanças na governança dos produtores dentro dessa cadeia. Apesar de haver indícios de que a soja transgênica vai dominar o mercado nacional, é importante saber se isso já está sendo consolidado em Mato Grosso, pois esse é um dos mais representativos no plantio de soja do Brasil, sendo a região de Sorriso a maior produtora mundial em área dessa commoditie. Como aporte teórico para dar sustentação ao trabalho, utilizou-se a Economia dos Custos de Transação (ECT). Diante dos resultados encontrados junto a alguns produtores de Mato Grosso, pode-se inferir que a área plantada com soja transgênica não aumentará muito na safra 2007/8 e que um dos fatores que levaram ao não aumento dessa área foi a baixa produtividade da soja transgênica frente à convencional.------------------------------------------------This paper shearch to show which is the factors that take the agricultural producers of the Mato Grosso to plant the transgenic soybean in detriment of the conventional, a time that the adoption of soybean RR change the form of governance of the producers inside of this chain. Although to have indications of that the transgenic soybean goes to dominate the market national, it is importante to know if this already is being consolidated in Mato Grosso, since this state is one of most representative in the plantation of soybean of Brazil, being the region of Sorriso world-wide the producing greater of this commoditie in area. As it arrives in port theoretical to give sustentation to the work, we use the Economy of the Costs of Transactions (ECT). Ahead of the joined results together to some producers of Mato Grosso, it can be inferred that the area planted with transgenic soybean will not increase very in harvest 2007/8 and that one of the factors that had led to not increase of this area was low the productivity of the transgenic soybean front to the conventional.
