La producción de trigo en España en el último tercio del siglo XIX. Una comparación internacional


  • Gil, Rafael Barquín


The aim of this paper is to show the evolution of Spanish wheat output in the last decades of XIX century. The paper evaluates both the advances in statistical methods achieved by provincial agricultural scientists in the 80's, and the statistic consumption data published by the Ministry of Public Works in 1868. The main conclusion is that consumption and output of wheat between 1868 and 1890 were similar to those obtained for the period 1890–1896. This suggest that the Spanish and Italian cereal sectors behaved quite alike. The paper also proves that the tariff aproved by Cánovas had a powerful effect on the wheat pattern of consumption of the Spanish peasantry.
