Replication data for: Agricultural Productivity and Structural Transformation: Evidence from Brazil

Bruno Caprettini, Paula Bustos & Jacopo Ponticelli
We study the effects of the adoption of new agricultural technologies on structural transformation. To guide empirical work, we present a simple model where the effect of agricultural productivity on industrial development depends on the factor-bias of technical change. We test the predictions of the model by studying the introduction of genetically engineered soybean seeds in Brazil, which had heterogeneous effects on agricultural productivity across areas with different soil and weather characteristics. We find that...
