Abstract for: Public Policies Assessment to Improve the Small Agricultural Producer Profit

Traditional agriculture is the main source of national food competes with imported products and mostly made by small producers. In recent decades, various policies have been implemented to support this type of farming, such as improving yields through new seed varieties. After trade opening in 1990, this was affected by import products, therefore was adopted mechanisms for protection and price stabilization. On the other hand, in this decade, public spending in infrastructure increased substantially vial. However, several studies show that the situation of small farmers in this agriculture has improved just slightly despite the fact that for example the policy of improving varieties has been successful in increasing yield improvement. The purpose of this research is to analyze the dynamic effects of the principal policies in support of traditional agriculture on the profit of peasant as formal farmers. The politics of agricultural support to be used for the study are mentioned in the previous paragraph; these are within the tariff and tax policy. The application presented here is a computer simulation which will help to measure the impact over the many political options applied and determine the better choice upgrading and protecting the peasantsí profit.
