The promotion of the transition of family farms to the next generations leads to consequences to the whole agricultural sector. Progress and economical and social stability are associated to the continuity of the rural entrepreneurships. Public policies to Brazilian agriculture must consider its diversity and heterogeneous structure. Based on international experience, this paper aims to study the succession process in agricultural businesses, focusing on public policies based on tax, credit and educational stimuli. Results point to the necessity of systematizing the information on the management of family farms in Brazilian agriculture and suggest promising paths to the contribution of public policies on solutions to the succession problem of those enterprises.
