CADENA INIGUEZ, Pedro et al. Peasant persistence: livelihoods in marginalized areas of Chiapas. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.4, pp.809-819. ISSN 2007-0934.

The production structure in highly marginalized areas responds to a need to produce enough food for families, even above surplus production and conservation of natural resources. Productive diversity and intensification of agricultural land through associations such as corn and beans generate the system called "milpa", which takes advantage of tight spaces and difficult terrain work. The aim of this study was to analyze the productivity of the system "milpa" of highly marginalized regions of Chiapas, as well as internal and external factors affecting the timing and risk of sustaining farm families in the region. For this purpose 124 surveys rose in the municipalities of Ocotepec and Copainala. The interaction of peasant persistence with other subsystems analyzed. And the use, availability and dynamics thereof. In addition the influence of government support received by producers in the region studied. The information obtained corresponds to the period 2009-2013. The results show that although Copainala and Ocotepec are neighboring municipalities, there is a difference between them in terms of economy and competitiveness. In addition, economic dependence on government support can generate risks of vulnerability for the inhabitants of these municipalities.
