    Abstract

    O trabalho teve como objetivo estimar a safra paranaense, que somando as culturas da soja e do milho foi recorde chegando em 2007/08 a 21,2 milhões de toneladas, aliado a isso tem-se uma situação favorável de preços internacionais, que gera resultados positivos para o setor produtivo e permite a recuperação do setor que passou por anos complicados por problemas climáticos e de preços. A estimativa da safra foi realizada com uma amostra de dados que representam 78% da área de soja e 61% da área de milho do Estado do Paraná. Quanto as questões relacionadas a biotecnologia – soja transgênica – RR, os resultados foram os esperados, de que essa é mais uma tecnologia disponível ao produtor e esta evoluindo para ser cada vez mais competitiva com a soja convencional. A região Centro-Norte do Brasil que compreende a mais nova fronteira agrícola brasileira nos Estados do Tocantins, Maranhão, Piauí e Bahia, apresenta potencial de incorporação ao processo produtivo de mais 6,5 milhões de hectares. Essa estimativa é com base nas discussões com o setor produtivo e entidades governamentais visitadas durante a expedição, isso respeitando a legislação ambiental brasileira. Finalmente a expedição caminhos do campo, esta sendo uma fonte de informação adicional ao agronegócio para subsidiar na tomada de decisão dos agentes de mercado que atuam no setor.----------------------------------------------The main objective of this paper was to estimate the Paraná State harvest of soybean and maize that is reaching a record of 21.2 million tonnes. Besides this record the international conjuncture are positive with high prices. The effects for the productive sector are the recovery from the complicated years, because of weather problems and low prices. The estimate of the crop was conducted with a sample of data that represent 78% of the area of soybeans and 61% of the area of maize, state of parana. Regarding the issues related to biotechnology - mainly transgenic soybeans - RR, the results indicates that this is one more technology available to the farmer and it is developing to be increasingly competitive with conventional soybeans. The centre-north brazilian region, that includes Tocantins, Maranhao, Piaui and Bahia is the newest agricultural frontier in Brazil and presents potential to incorporate 6.5 million hectares to the brazilian agriculture. This estimate is based on discussions with farmers representatives, cooperatives and government entities visited during the work and respecting the Brazilian environmental law. Finally the expedição caminhos do campo is an additional information source to the brazilian agribusiness and helps the decision-makers of the sector.
