Agricultura en Uruguay 1911-1930
AbstractThis paper seeks to reexamine the traditional view of agricultural stagnation built by the contrast between the stagnation of the agricultural area vis-à-vis the booming of meat packing houses. The paper focuses on three aspects: 1) the increase in the quantum and variety of the production versus the evolution of the cultivated area and the agricultural productivity analysis; 2) the structure of the sector, in terms of size and land tenure, throughout the country and in the agricultural zone, 3) the public policies towards the sector: the failure of a comprehensive land reform promoted by the batllismo and the promotion of technological innovation, specific credit and support to improve the market conditions.
