Abstract

Resumen El propósito del presente trabajo es la comparación de los costes de producción del cultivo de naranjo en la Comunidad Valenciana según tres modalidades: cultivo convencional, en agricultura ecológica y en producción integrada, así como la identificación de las partidas de costes responsables de dichas diferencias. Para ello se ha llevado a cabo un estudio de las tres poblaciones de naranjo cultivadas, a partir del cual se ha diseñado una muestra estratificada por comarcas y según tipo de riego disponible en las parcelas. Los objetivos se han completado mediante el empleo de técnicas de análisis multivariante, en concreto del análisis factorial discriminante. Por último, se relacionan los resultados obtenidos con el mayor o menor grado de adopción de las técnicas alternativas en el cultivo del naranjo en la región estudiada. Palabras clave: Costes de producción, naranjo, Comunidad Valenciana, agricultura ecológica, producción integrada, análisis factorial discriminante. Abstract. The aim of this paper was to compare orange production costs in the region of Valencia (Spain), which depend on the way they are grown (conventional, IP or organically), identifying at the same time the cost differences between them. With this purpose, and after analysing the three orange populations cultivated in the region, a sample was designed taking into account not only the location of the plots, but also the irrigation system available at the farm level (drip or flow irrigation). Once the field work was completed, a multivariate analysis, concretely a factor discriminant analysis was implemented to reach the objectives of the research. The results obtained were consistent with the degree of adoption of the different alternative citrus production systems in the region studied.
