HERNANDEZ-PEREZ, Juan Luis. Agricultural innovation system as a strategy of competitiveness of Sonoran farmers in the NAFTA context. Estud. soc. Rev. aliment. contemp. desarro. reg. [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.54, e19828.  Epub 30-Abr-2020. ISSN 2395-9169.


This paper analyzes the characteristics of the agricultural innovation system in the state of Sonora, as a strategy for farmers' competitiveness in the context of NAFTA. First, this research identified the principal actors of the system; then, interactions between them were analyzed, as well as factors that encourage or restrict their relationship.


Quantitative and qualitative information was collected, analyzed, and related, and semi-structured interviews were conducted.


The results provide valuable data to understand and bear witness to the competitive dynamics based on innovation in export agriculture in Sonora.


Given that the research is based on a case study, the results obtained do not express the general scenario of Sonoran agriculture.


It is concluded that this agricultural innovation system is subordinate and unstructured but competitive. Also, alternatives are proposed to improve this system.

Palavras-chave : regional development; agricultural innovation system; export agriculture; economic competitiveness; Mexico-Sonora; NAFTA.
