RAMIREZ ALCOCER, Lorena; SCHWENTESIUS RINDERMANN, Rita; GOMEZ CRUZ, Manuel Ángel  and  MARTINEZ BORREGO, Estela. La organización de productores y los programas de comercialización del sorgo en Guanajuato (México). Prob. Des [online]. 2006, vol.37, n.145, pp.177-201. ISSN 0301-7036.

This paper analyzes sorghum producers' organizations in the state of Guanajuato and their access to support programs oriented towards the sale of grain. For this purpose, open interviews were carried out with producers, representatives of organizations and officials at different levels of government. 89% of the organizations studied have been going for at least fourteen years, are made up of an average of 62 producers and their activity is oriented fundamentally to the sale of grain, credit management and obtaining federal sales support. It is concluded that the organizations under study have difficulties obtaining sales support, because they are small, have low storage capacity and limited access to financing.

Keywords : ASERCA; producers' organization; sorghum.
