Financial and socioeconomic assessment of the coffee-banana-citrus traditional agroforestry system in Tlapacoyan, Veracruz. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.spe16, pp.3287-3299.

The coffee-banana-citrus agroforestry system in Tlapacoyán, Veracruz, is dynamic and complex, with a cultural and social wealth; it presents less risk to climatological and economic events and implies increased need for labor than a monoculture. This work has the general objective to conduct a financial and economic assessment for family production unit’s coffee-banana-citrus traditional agroforestry system in the municipality of Tlapacoyan, Veracruz. Specific objectives agronomically characterize the agroforestry system and construct a typology of producers. Three categories of producers as defined by the surface, available manpower and technological level, through surveys, field observations and the creation of a database is established. Each category (I, II and III) were calculated costs and revenues with the help of the development of technical itineraries, later to determine the indicators to 30 years. The results of category II are the most favorable. Building typology of producers is advisable to analyze production systems; it is concluded that the financial indicators (TIR, VAN and B/C) are economically viable and socioeconomic indicators (PMO and PT) show a higher income than wages in the region and a higher yield is obtained when the surface is less.
