BRIGNARDELLO, María. Entendiendo la organización social del agro hoy: ¿Quiénes llevan adelante el trabajo en la pequeña y mediana producción vitivinícola?. Estud. trab. [online]. 2016, n.51. ISSN 0327-5744.

Questioning the production processes in agriculture today directly involves redefining the work and, therefore, the social agents that occupy these workplaces. So, this article is placed within agricultural studies that seek to understand how worldwide integration is transforming the organization of agro-food systems and in which ways these global forces are mediated then translated in the local field. Specifically, since the late 1980s, there have been significant changes in a specific segment of the current wine production in Mendoza, now this sector being focused on the development of differentiated products, characterized by more flexible productions patterns and the growth of exports. In this scenario, the small and medium production that manages to go through restructuring processes and is linked to the quality production schemes, should adapt to conceptions, agro-industrial linkages, and the required production practices. Now, what happens to agricultural work in the vineyard? Who carries out the new tasks incorporated, and also the traditional ones? How are these different task remunerated? These questions are answered from a qualitative analysis of interviews that were made to small and medium producers localized in the Mendoza riverHigh Area, which produce under quality schemes. Through this methodology, we try to understand the current forms of recourse to labor in an agricultural production crossed by global changes, but also by local history and work configurations.
