Main Article Content
Global requirements for food products demand increasingly intelligent ways of producing them. Corn is one of the most important foods for human beings, since it can be used to make a large number of preparations, as well as to obtain numerous by-products. Corn producers in Buena Fe canton face difficulties, which in some cases do not allow them to obtain the expected yields. The reality presented by the farmers varies according to the size of the property destined to the crop, small, medium and large producers are subject to economic and production conditions limited by their conditions. In the canton there is variability in productivity, due to the fact that the area has several mechanisms to promote the crop, without having a clear vision of the best option. Most producers base their production systems on technological packages recommended by commercial agrochemical companies and, to a lesser extent, on experimental models derived from or recommended by official agencies that assume a certain control of production factors in certain areas.
