RESUMEN: En este trabajo se analizan, de forma conjunta y para el periodo 1970-1995, los factores que a priori deben ser muy relevantes para explicar el comportamiento de la productividad total en el sector agrario español. En el estudio se utilizan dos procedimientos principales de modelización: lo que podemos considerar como metodología econométrica "tradicional" y la metodología de cointegración. Se acepta la influencia sobre la productividad, coincidiendo con los resultados que se obtienen mayoritariamente en otros estudios sobre el tema, de variables como el capital humano o los gastos en I+D agrario, pero se resalta adicionalmente la gran influencia de otras variables como las condiciones climáticas, los cambios en la propia estructura productiva del sector y el capital público. SUMMARY: In this paper we analyse, as a whole and for the period 1970-95, the outstanding factors that explain the behaviour of total productivity in the Spanish agrarian sector. In the study, two main methods of modeling had been used: those we consider like "traditional" econometric methodology and the methodology of cointegration. We accepted the influence on the productivity, with the same results that the majority of authors which obtain equal results about this subject, and about variables like, human capital, or the expenditures in agrarian research and development; but in addition we stick out the big influence of others variables like weather conditions, the change in the own structure of productivity by the sector and the public capital.
