South American countries have performed relatively better than in Central American countries. The sector has contracted in several Caribbean economies, yet the second fastest rate of growth (%) was recorded in the Dominican Republic.

The region has positioned itself as a leading exporter of agricultural products. Latin American countries are. Latin American countries (Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Costa Rica).

We calibrate TFP and the rate of technological change in agriculture for these countries by matching agriculture’s share of employment from the data.

We choose Chile as the benchmark because it is the country for which we have the longest consolidated data series. Within the Western Hemisphere, agriculture is the prime engine of economic growth for many countries.

The region continues to be the breadbasket of the world with 23% of arable land, 31% of water, and 23% of the globe’s forests. It accounts for 50% of soybean production, 44% of beef exports, and 42% of chicken exports.

Latin America. This report reviews the agricultural support policies of 18 Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries, which together account for 92% of the region’s agricultural value added. Although agricultural policies and programs in LAC arestructured in different ways, there are some clear trends and commonalities.

The region continues to be the breadbasket of the world with 23 percent of arable land, 31 percent of water, and   Latin America could be the “breadbasket” of the world by harnessing innovation, investment and partnerships to drive sustainable and inclusive agricultural growth in the region ; Four Latin American countries committed to expanding public-private collaboration to boost sustainable agricultural growth, with support from global and regional.

Production (and consumption) of agricultural plant commodities has a diverse geographical distribution. Along with climate and corresponding types of vegetation, the economy of a nation also influences the level of agricultural production.

Production of some products is highly concentrated in a few countriesnce, China, the leading producer of wheat and ramie inproduces 6% of the world's. The quantification of deforestation-related emissions embodied in production, export and consumption presented here improves on previous estimates (Henders et al., ; Karstensen et al., ; Saikku et al., ) by covering all agricultural commodities in all tropical countries, as well as by using subnational resolution for the two.
