The effects of New Brazilian Forest Act in agribusiness chain structures

The Brazilian agribusiness is an important activity to Brazilian economy. This sector represents 22.54 % of 2013 Brazilian GDP and is composed of different actors in each production agribusiness chains. This sector is growing year by year in terms of production thanks to technology adoption and production strategies. Environmental respect concerns (e.g. deforestation) are crucial to maintain sustainable growing of agricultural production. In 2012, the Brazilian Forest Act was update to deal with production and environmental preservation. Therefore, changes in institutional level affect agribusiness chain arrangements and actor’s behavior. The aim of the work is to explore the changes in the agribusiness chain support structures and trade-off mechanisms emerging after the Brazilian Forest Act implementation. In order to dress this question, we use an internet survey to investigate Brazilian agribusiness actors’ perceptions in different Federal States. The respondent reported mainly major changes in agribusiness identity support structures. They emphasize the emerging and needs of trade-off mechanisms in resources management and production proceedings to deal with Brazilian Forest Act. The sample also reported that the Brazilian New Forest Act leads to major changes at a farm level.
