Abstract: This article aims at analyzing the process of land occupation by temporary crops at the Southwest Micro-region of Goiás State, namely sugarcane, soy, corn and sorghum crops. All cultures analyzed take part in production chains in the scope of agro-industry settled in Goiás State. The study revealed that these cultures are mainly centralized in South Goiás Mesoregion, which has become a polarizing region for agro-industrial investments, especially Southwest Goiás Micro-region. Data indicate that the region has shown a significant expansion in the number of sugarcane agro-industries, in addition to agro-industrial and grain consolidation, specifically soybean and corn. The competition for land between 2000 and 2011 indicates greater use of soil in the region analyzed, as well as positive growth rates of crops. Data collected on the meat and grain agro-industrial sector indicate a differentiated competition for land, whereas in the meat industry there is increasing confinement options. The grain sector has developed through COMIGO a strategy for optimizing and improving the infrastructure available in order to support rural producers in agricultural activities. Due to projected investments and the consolidation of sugarcane agro-industries in Southwest Goiás, we conclude that there is a need for public policies on land management, aimed at an economic development and sustainability more appropriate to the reality of production chains of grains and meat settled in Goiás State since the 1990s.
