GARRAPA, Anna Mary. Agricultural Day Laborers and Transnational Corporations in the San Quintin Valley. Frontera norte [online]. 2019, vol.31, e2018.  Epub Jan 01, 2019. ISSN 2594-0260.

The article explores the application of the Californian agricultural model in the strawberry sector in the San Quintin Valley in Baja California, Mexico. It analyzes economic operations by transnational commercial companies, as well as anti-corporate mobilization among agricultural day laborers. The study contributes to the debate on global production chains and networks, transnational corporations, and agri-food studies, combining analyses of the processes of capital circulation and the social relations of production. The research was conducted over several stages in 2016 and 2017, using a combination of quantitative and above all qualitative techniques.

Keywords : transnational corporations; day laborers; strawberry; San Quintin Valley; Baja California.
