El presente trabajo busca evidencias de patrones internos de funcionamiento en el comportamiento económico de los productores campesinos del sur de Chile. Según los resultados, parece ser que la existencia de una determinada relación en la dotación de factores de producción hace tender los sistemas campesinos hacia definiciones tecnológicas distintas según el factor productivo que actúa como dinamizador. El objetivo implícito en la estrategia productiva de la familia campesina sería valorar este factor relativamente más abundante, al relacionarlo tecnológicamente con aquellos mas restrictivos. Esta evidencia asocia el tema de la adopción de un esquema tecnológico con un proceso racional de optimización por parte de la familia campesina en función de la dotación relativa de factores que maneja. The present work seek evidence on internal operation standards in the economic behavior of the peasants of the south of Chile. According to the results seems be that the existence of a given relationship in the endowment of production factors makes to tend the peasant systems toward different technological definitions according to the productive factor which is greater relative abundance. The implicit objetive in the productive strategy of the peasant family would be to value this factor relatively more abundant, upon relating it technologically to those most restrictive, this evidence associates the topic of the adoption of a technological plan with a rational optimization process by part of the peasant family in function of the relative endowment of factors that it handles.
