SAN VICENTE, MISIONES, ARGENTINA - NOVEMBER, 2012: A group of tenant farmers cuts the recently harvested tobacco.

The financial cost of these products always falls on small producers, who only retain 40% of the crop value, which has been unilaterally established by the cooperatives of large producers.
