The Argentine agrifood sector experienced deep changes during the 90's. These transformations can be analysed from different levels ; their complex articulation determines a new productive landscape and a new position in international trade and production: at the commercial level, Argentina has liberalised external trade, allowed domestic producers and agrifood enterprises to import their inputs at international prices, promoting the internationalisation of supply chains; at the production level, the permit to grow GMO, soybean in particular, and the deepening of the already diffused zero tillage technique, enabled high increases in production and exports; at the governance level, the arrival of big food and inputs multinational corporations modified the industrial structure, the power relationships within the value chains, and the consequent rent appropriation.
