Sonora's agriculture exhibits a differentiated behavior after a decade of trade liberalization, On the one hand, exports increased along with the surface area planted with vegetables and fruits; and contrary to expectations, basic grains maintained a solid position in the farming pattern. On the other hand, interesting symptoms of transformation are noticeable, such as the emergence of a visible corporate culture among farmers. Under these conditions, Sonora's agricultural sector seems to be ready for the challenges of global competition.
