Even while manufacturing and services are showing a steep growth, agriculture is still a driving force of the Brazilian economy with 5.8 percent of GDP (against 2 percent in France), and with the agribusiness share reaching 23 percent. In 2009, agriculture accounted for 19.3 percent of the labor force, or 19 million people, thus strongly contributing to poverty reduction. Agribusiness employment accounted for 2.7 percent of the labor force. Agriculture also benefited from macroeconomic and structural reforms initiated from the 1990s onward, with the goal of better economic stability, inflation reduction and trade expansion.
These reforms paved the way for competitive agricultural operations, thanks to reduced production costs (inputs) and governmental interventions to control prices for key commodities (coffee, sugar and wheat). Impacted by the financial crisis, agricultures growth has accelerated starting in 2003, partly thanks to a productivity model based on high mechanization, improved concentration and significant labor force reserves. Encouraged to move away from social conflicts linked to land overcrowding and colonization of new production areas, investment in agricultural research boosted crop productivity by over 151 percent in 30 years.
