HUERTA MUNOZ, Elena; CRUZ HERNANDEZ, Javier  y  AGUIRRE ALVAREZ, Luciano. The appraisal of organic fertilizers for a comunitary cattle manures management system in backyards. Estud. soc. Rev. aliment. contemp. desarro. reg. [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.53, e19702. ISSN 2395-9169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24836/es.v29i53.702.

Objective:

To determinate the quantity and availability of manure released in backyards in Santa María Nepopualco, Huejotzingo, Puebla; to know the level of appraisal and preference that small-scale-farmers have for the use of organic fertilizers, the effects they have on their crops, knowledge and interest in preparing them, to initiate a local community waste management process.

Metodology:

A descriptive study was carried out through the application of questionnaires to 87 informants from a total of 604 small-Farmers Domestic Units (FDU), with the information collected, a frequency, percentages, Mulivariate by Main Components (MCA) and Cluster Analysis (AC) was carried out, after adjustment or normalization of the variables.

Results:

The amount of manure generated within the community is sufficient for the production of organic fertilizers through the processing of small-scale manure, among small-farmers there is favorable appraisal of manures effects and interest in processed organic fertilizers. With the MCA and AC, three groups of FDU small-scale-farmers in the community were identified base on their aprraisal and interest.

Limitations:

A questionnaire was applied to a sample of FDU informants from the comunity, but selected at random.

Conclusions:

Due to availability and quantity of manure, appraisal of the effects of manure and interest in organic fertilizers, with the groups identified, as agents of change, the management and elaboration of organic fertilizers at community level in the backyards is feasible, but it must start from the interest, knowledget and local knowledge of the small-scale-farmers.
