From the starting point of social systems as interactive processes of organization and emergence, a critique of the positivist approach of regional development has been constructed. This work adheres to such concepction and emphasizes the importance of a perspective made up of agricultural chains, networks and actors in the context of globalization. Non-linearity and uncertainty are analysed in terms of change processes and the transformation of agro-industry.
