PadrÃ£o de inovaÃ§Ã£o tecnolÃ³gica na indÃºstria de defensivos agrÃcolas brasileira
The aim of this paper is to analyze the patterns of technological innovation of the pesticide industry in Brazil in order to suggest industrial policies to reinforce the firmâ€™s competitiveness. The database is based on micro-data of the Technological Innovation Survey (PINTEC) and the Yearly Industrial Survey (PIA) of the Brazilian Statistical and Geography Bureau (IBGE) in 2005. Based on this database the Brazilian industrial firms were classified into four categories according to their innovative capacity. The main results show the existence of multinational subsidiaries as technological leaders and follower firms, composed by national firms, which have reduced R&D capabilities, focusing less technology-intensive products
