Title: Geographical Aspects of the Agriculture of Santa Catarina State, Brazil
Creators: Noble, Allen G.

Abstract: Agriculture is the most important economic activity in Santa Catarina, in spite of rapidly developing timber and light manufacturing industries. The agricultural industry of Santa Catarina differs from that of the rest of Brazil in being small scale and almost entirely owner-operated. In general, field crops are far more important than livestock, with corn as the dominant crop of the state. Wheat, manioc, black beans, and rice are other staples. Brazilian agricultural statistics are presented on the basis of "physiographic zones," on which basis all government statistics are collected, even though this may result in quite erroneous impressions.
