The recent Common Market Organization “sugar” has provoked deep changes to the single actors of the sugar
chain (productive means producers, machineries renters, sugar industries, seeds and chemicals suppliers).
The modifications of other Common Market Organization, as well as tobacco, are attended with the effects that they will
produce on the respective agroindustrial chains.
With the aim to reduce the costs of conversion of the agricultural farms it is necessary to preview the adaptation of
productive means to the new cultural addresses.
Among the productive means, same are easily adaptable to different crops, others such as farming machineries have great
difficulties of adaptation.
Among the farming machineries, the generic ones are easy adaptable to other productions or sellable, those specialized for a
single crop (such as sugar beet or tobacco harvesters) do not find spaces on the market of the used one and therefore it is
necessary to verify the possibility of adaptation to new cultivations.
