HERNANDEZ PEREZ, Juan Luis. Technological development and trade integration of agricultural producers in the Coast of Hermosillo in the age of globalization. Región y sociedad [online]. 2019, vol.31, e1006. ISSN 2448-4849.

This paper describes the characteristics of technological development of Coast of Hermosillo’s agricultural system in Sonora, and its relation to the forms of integration of producers into national and global value chains. For this purpose, quantitative and qualitative information was collected, analyzed and correlated, and semi-structured interviews were conducted. The research problem is original and innovative; it is systematically posed, and the theoretical-analytical tools necessary for studying and analyzing it are developed. However, the role played by private companies and government institutions in the management of regional technological development is not sufficiently accounted for. The results provide valuable quantitative and qualitative data for understanding and giving evidence of Sonoran agriculture’s socio-economic reality. It follows that such technological development has not benefited all producers equally and sufficiently.

Keywords : technological development; trade integration; value chains; agricultural system.
