The purpose undertaken in this study was to show that there was a downward trend in the production and exports of Argentine agricultural commodities during the years 946-51, which may be easily noted from the statistics in Table VIII (see page ). Table XIII (see page ), a comparison of the pre-war exports (1935-39) of agricultural commodities with those pertaining during 1946-51 will show the obvious downward trend in grain exports. Under normal pre-war conditions, when the government intervention meant only aid to the farmer--and not the control of agricultural economy--such a downward trend would be highly doubtful, if not impossible. Even when the depths of the Great Depression were felt, agricultural production in pre-war years showed a definite upward trend over the years. But taking into consideration the post-war financial conditions of Argentine, as well as the policies of the government operative since 1946, the results of the study quite clearly demonstrate that there was a downward trend in the production and exports of farm products in Argentina from 1946-51.
