Este artigo analisa o processo de convergência microrregional agrícola utilizando um modelo com efeito threshold no período de 1970 a 1996. Os resultados mostraram a existência de três clubes de convergência. Um formado pelo grupo de microrregiões mais ricas, com concentração nas regiões Sul e Sudeste; outro formado pelo grupo de microrregiões mais pobres, concentrados na região Nordeste; e um terceiro grupo intermediário que agrupa as microrregiões do Centro-Oeste e do Norte do Brasil. Os resultados mostraram ainda que o capital físico é mais importante que o capital humano na explicação do processo de crescimento da agricultura brasileira.
