VILLA RODRIGUEZ, Abel O.  and  BRACAMONTE SIERRA, Álvaro. Procesos de aprendizaje y modernización productiva en el agro del noroeste de México: Los casos de la agricultura comercial de la Costa de Hermosillo, Sonora y la agricultura orgánica de la zona sur de Baja California Sur. Estud. front [online]. 2013, vol.14, n.27, pp.217-254. ISSN 2395-9134.

The process of open markets has created import changes in the Mexican agriculture sector, very much noted in the so called crop pattern, the institutional frame that guides the agro-productive commercial relationships and trade organization. The agriculture in the Northwest region, particularly La Costa de Hermosillo in the State of Sonora and southern Baja in Baja Peninsula, shows a big transformation. This corresponds to Global Production Networks (GPN), a vertical integration with intensive extraterritorial interaction resulting in a process of productive escalation that favors; learning and the creation of new competitive capabilities indispensable to comply with high standards in international markets. These capabilities are reflected in improvements in product quality, productive efficiency and the development of new functions for he players involved in the production and trade of produce. It also reflects the transition to more sophisticated productive units where players are located in other territories. This study focuses on analyzing the roll of gpn in the transformation of the agricultural sector in the northwest region of Mexico, particularly the process that took place in modernizing both places.

Keywords : global production networks; competitive escalation; organic agriculture; conventional agriculture; technology.
