Los beneficios de los programas de promoción forestal desarrollados en Argentina a partir de 1990, fueron desaprovechados en la provincia de Santiago del Estero, a pesar de disponer de amplias superficies con aptitud forestal en zonas de secano y de regadío, debido a una insuficiencia de información y, consecuentemente, a la escasez de respuesta de los productores. Los objetivos de este trabajo son: a) analizar las repercusiones socioeconómicas que generó dicha política. b) evaluar la respuesta de los productores a tales incentivos. Para ello, se tomaron datos de campo procedentes de una encuesta estructurada, aplicada a una muestra de 152 explotaciones agrarias pertenecientes al área de riego del Río Dulce. La información recogida se resumió identificando las explotaciones tipo o representativas de la zona, y se diseñaron y resolvieron modelos matemáticos de optimización económica en cada una de ellas. Los resultados obtenidos parecen indicar que la política forestal de incentivos en Santiago del Estero debe ser replanteada. The benefits of forest incentives developed in Argentina throughout the 1990s, have not been taken advantage in the province of Santiago del Estero, despite its large surface for forestry uses in both irrigable and dry areas, due to a lack of information and, therefore, a low-level of response of the producers. This paper pursues two aims: a) analyze the social and economic consequences of this politics. b) evaluate the response of producers in Santiago del Estero to those incentives. To do that, field data from a structured poll, applied to a sample of 152 agrarian exploitations belonging to the irrigation area of Río Dulce, were collected. This information was summarized identifying the representative exploitations in the area, and mathematical models of economic optimization were designed and solved for each one. The results obtained suggest that the forest politics of incentives in Santiago del Estero, should be reconsidered.
