|Home > POTENCIALIDADES E LIMITAÇÕES DA AGRICULTURA FAMILIAR NO SUL DE MINAS GERAIS: UM DIAGNÓSTICO FUNDAMENTADO NA ABORDAGEM INTERPRETATIVA|
This study aims to identify orientation objects which are for the head of family farms, agroscience professionals and town authorities, the meaning of favorable or limiting factors to the development of family agriculture in the south of Minas Gerais region. In relation to data collection, the technique ‘focused interview’ was used. The interviewees were selected by the non- probabilistic method of sampling by judgment. The results also showed that the process of orientation is not linear, once the interviewees established multiple connections among the different situational objects. Those connections highlighted that taking advantage of favorable factors and the reduction of the impacts of the limiting factors involve interdisciplinary notion, for they represent dimensions that involve different knowledge areas.
