Title: An evolutionary approach to technological innovation in agriculture: Some preliminary remarks
Author: Possas, ML
Salles, S
deSilveira, JM
Abstract: This article proposes an interpretation of the process of technological innovation in agriculture. We begin with a criticism to the idea of agriculture as a particular environment in economic analysis, We argue that some dynamic concepts from economics of innovation, especially as seen by the evolutionary literature, can be used as an adequate theoretical reference to study innovation in agriculture, We then suggest an interpretation in terms of technological trajectories in order to explain the complexity of the technological regime in agriculture. Finally we discuss the present stage of transformation in this technological regime and the perspectives of the arising new trajectories.
