De campesinos a multifuncionales. La pequeña explotación agrícola en México
[From peasants to multifunctional. The small agricultural production in Mexico]

Listed author(s):
  • Acosta Reveles, Irma Lorena

This article rescues and describes the trajectory of peasant production in Mexico since the eighties, and its decomposition process in the neoliberalism context. Argument is that the ‘small family farm’ tends to diversify their sources of income as a result of the fall in price of basic grains. Then the peasant becomes a multifuncional agent, this consolidates multifunctionality as a household livelihood strategy. Este artículo rescata y describe la trayectoria de la producción campesina en México desde la década de los ochenta, y su proceso de descomposición en el contexto del neoliberalismo. El argumento es que la 'pequeña explotación agrícola familiar' tiende a diversificar sus fuentes de ingresos como consecuencia de la caída en el precio de los granos básicos. Entonces el campesino se convierte en un agente multifuncional. Esta multifuncionalidad consolida como una estrategia de sobrevivencia familiar.
