Los productores agropecuarios que están revolucionando el campo argentino. Usan la ciencia para mejorar las cosechas y dar valor agregado a los granos.

Rocío Grenon está haciendo de abeja. Saca el polen de una planta de soja y la coloca en la flor de otra. El invernadero está repleto de estas plantas polinizadas por esta estudiante del último año de Agronomía que trabaja en lo que es la vanguardia de la ciencia y la tecnología aplicada en la Argentina. En este laboratorio de Indear, el Instituto de Agrobiotecnología de Rosario, de la empresa Bioceres, se investigan las nuevas técnicas de manipulación genética de los cultivos, que luego son testeados en campos del sur de Córdoba y que ya han conseguido rendimientos asombrosos. Es el primer engranaje de una larga cadena de institutos del Estado y privados que están liderando una revolución silenciosa en la Pampa argentina, con la capacidad de transformar la economía del país y darle una oportunidad única a las próximas generaciones.

Article published in La Nación, 27th November 2013 | By Gustavo Grobocopatel
The social and political turbulences taking place all over the world, including in our country, give us the opportunity to revise some ideas.

Some weeks ago, philosopher Bernardo Toro stated that institutions are a group of rules which arise with the aim of aiding transactions within an ethic framework, that is to say, to build up dignity and social welfare. The institutions of a society are the framework in which policies flow and determine the running of business and economy.

The long and murky link between entrepreneurs and state

Nota publicada en clarin.com el jueves 9 de enero de 2014 | Por Luis Alberto Romero (HISTORIADOR. Universidad De San Andrés. Club PolItico Argentino)
La relación de los grandes empresarios con el Estado es turbia. Desde hace tanto tiempo, que es difícil saber cómo empezó, cómo fue que Margarita se convirtió en Margot. Quizá fue culpa del “cafishio prepotente” estatal; quizá de los “berretines de grandeza” de los empresarios, entusiasmados con el suave empuje de la brisa del Estado, que los empujaba sin esfuerzo.

Farming without fields

E-mail Print PDF

Jan 4th 2014 | BUENOS AIRES | From the print edition of The Economist

An Argentine farming group is heavy on science and light on assets
BRIAN BRETT, a poet, called farming “a profession of hope”. Farmers must pray for just enough rain, amenable soil conditions and good market prices. In Argentina their prayers do not end there. Since the country’s financial crisis in 2002, its government has taxed farmers at between 20% and 35% on their grain exports, while galloping inflation has pushed costs up by 25% a year. Worse, the government has propped up the Argentine peso so that it is 60% stronger than it would be if freely traded, making crops too dear to sell even as commodity prices have soared.

SOY: An unstable balance

E-mail Print PDF

Published in the December 2012 edition of Notigrobo | By Carlos Sanchez Negrete (General Company of Term SA)
The pricing structure of the current soybean market reflects a situation of supply and demand characterized by concentration and seasonality. The concentration of supply is explained in only three countries - the US, Brazil and Argentina - produce 85 % of world soybean. On the demand side, China accounts for 65 % of world import demand. The strongest feature of seasonality is given in the U.S., located in the northern hemisphere, representing 40% of world exports, and Brazil along with Argentina, the southern hemisphere, exporting 46% of the bean on the planet. With this market structure we can deduce that any climate problem in any of the three countries supply hubs or any political or economic event in China can dramatically change the market situation.

Getting it right: a path of governance and development

Posted in lanacion.com.ar on Saturday December 28 | By Gustavo Grobocopatel and Fabio J. Quetglas
In recent years the country has experienced conflict situations, to differing degrees, compared to generating economic transformations of social stress, resulting from the change in the productive matrix in different regions, either by the innovative exploitation of natural resources (such as the case of large-scale mining), either by the territorial expansion of a mode of production that changes the ecosystem of actors and social relations (the expansion of the agricultural frontier), either by reading the consequences of a given mode of production (as is the case of afforestation and industrialization).
