Abstract

A agricultura familiar tem papel importante nos agronegócios. A manutenção desses agricultores é uma das preocupações prioritárias dos governos. Também é amplamente conhecido o fato que o desempenho das propriedades familiares varia significativamente. Esse artigo busca contribuir para a explicação do porquê dessa variação de desempenho, através da Teoria Baseado em Recursos (RBV). Nesse sentido, foi desenvolvido um estudo exploratório de 12 propriedades agrícolas familiares que tem seus resultados econômicos dos últimos 6 anos acompanhados pela Empresa de Pesquisa Agropecuária – Epagri. O objetivo central foi identificar as causas que sustentam um desempenho consistentemente e repetitivamente maior ao longo desse período. Os resultados indicam que as vantagens competitivas estão relacionadas ao processo de tomada de decisão do produtor rural na gestão da propriedade. As habilidades diferenciadoras encontradas foram: seleção adequada de inovações e investimentos, implementação das inovações, aprimoramento incremental do sistema de produção, monitoramento técnico e econômico. Essas habilidades encontradas têm valor estratégico, pois apresentam características de dependência do caminho e de grau de codificação do conhecimento.---------------------------The family farming has an important role in agribusiness.
