MERLIN-URIBE, Yair et al. Typology of peasant strategies in organic coffee farming in the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. Ecosistemas y recur. agropecuarios [online]. 2018, vol.5, n.15, pp.411-423. ISSN 2007-901X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.19136/era.a5n15.1714.

In peasant coffee farming there is a gradient of productive strategies determined by functional factors. The objective of the study was to bu i Id a typology of coffee crop management strategies used by 87 coffee farmers in the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. A database generated by an organic coffee farmers’ organization was used. By means of an ascending hierarchical classification, three types of strategies were identified, defined by sex, age and level of intensity in the use of productive factors. The most intensive group consisted of women who make permanent use of the labor of external origin. Seeing the role of women and youth in productive and survival strategies in peasant coffee farming can make the orientation and use of resources by coffee farmers’ organizations effective and improve the design of public policies.
