Content The incentive which determined the economic policy of Cuba that has resulted in new management practices for agriculture has been based on the necessity to reduce the coefficients of imported chemical inputs. This study was conducted in Cuba from 1999-2000, working with 3 CPAs (Cooperativas de Produccion Agropecuarias), all linked closely to the state. The study results observed a reduction in chemical input quantity for some crops as well as technological changes.
