Limits and opportunities for building a Local Productive Arrangement (APL): the experience of the "Balde Cheio" project in Mato Grosso do Sul state

<p></p><p>Abstract: The aim of the current study is to analyze whether the "Balde Cheio" (Full Bucket) Project, which is carried out in Mato Grosso do Sul State, may lead to a Local Productive Arrangement (APL) pointing out limitations and potentialities for its construction. As the methodological aspects, we used secondary data through literature and field research (visit farms). The technical training availability, the financial support given by the State, and the increased milk production/productivity in the properties are elements able to lead to the LPA.</p><p></p>
