CUEVAS REYES, Venancio et al. Family agriculture and technology for the preparation of granulated piloncillo in the community of Aldzulup Poytzén, San Luis Potosí. Nova scientia [online]. 2017, vol.9, n.19, pp.481-501. ISSN 2007-0705.

The objective of the study was to characterize the piloncillo producers with the purpose of contributing with information that allows to know the importance of the use of technology in the production of granulated piloncillo in the community of Aldzulup Poytzén, Tancanhuitz, San Luis Potosí. Non-probabilistic sampling interviewed 36 producers of piloncillo. The study of the scalar variables was performed by analysis of variance for comparison of means and correlation analysis. There were significant differences (p <0.05) between the technological level of the piloncillo producers (high, medium and low), however, there were no differences in the levels of production obtained between them. There is a restrictive link to the market motivated by marketing factors that leads to the sale of industrial piloncillo; 97.22% of the producers sell this type of piloncillo. The family agriculture of the piloncillo producers has a productive diversification in their activities related to agriculture and livestock (sowing maize, beans, fruit, hens, pigs). It is concluded that the production of granulated piloncillo is not only explained by the low technological level, since this type of piloncillo is produced by the three strata. In addition, the study corroborates the diversification of productive activities of family agriculture as a strategy to support this type of producers.
