LAINEZ-LOYO, Eduardo et al. Production and marketing of mamey in Alpoyeca, Guerrero: opinion of producers. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2020, vol.11, n.3, pp.635-647.  Epub 30-Ago-2021. ISSN 2007-0934.

Mexico is the main producer of mamey (Pouteria sapota) in the world; however, it is perceived that the production and commercialization of the fruit is affected by various biological, technical and socioeconomic factors that negatively impact the development of the production chain. To have direct evidence of the case, in 2017, mamey producers from the municipality of Alpoyeca, Guerrero were interviewed, aiming to know and analyze their opinion of the problem for production and marketing. Fifty mamey producers were interviewed and the information was collected through a questionnaire. The factors that affect the production and commercialization of mamey were grouped into biological, technical and socioeconomic. Biologics are related to the presence of pests and diseases that drastically affect the useful life of plants and fruit. The declared technical problems were aging plants, poor management of the orchard that affects production, health and quality of the fruit. Socioeconomics have to do with the lack of economic resources, low product prices, lack of institutional support and intermediaries. In this way, production and marketing is affected by poor management of the garden due to technical ignorance of the producers, low economic solvency, lack of a secure market and the lack of institutional support, which is aggravated by the poor organization of producers.
