Víctor Hugo Robles Francia

The purpose of this research was to analyze the success factors in agricultural enterprises. 88 Mexican greenhouses were studied. General Managers completed the questionnaire on seven success factors: Businessperson Profile, Human Resource Management, Quality Certification, Technology, Financial Resources, Governmental Tax-Subsidies and Internationalization. The respective greenhouses were successful because they have survived four years or more, recovered their initial investment and increased their production capacity.
