IMPACT EVALUATION OF APICULTURE ACTIVITY IN THE TEHUANTEPEC ISTHMUS, OAXACA, MÉXICO

Abstrac


In this study, the feasibility of apiculture as a complementary activity for the family unit to generate additional income in the agricultural and livestock rural production units of the region of the Tehuantepec Isthmus is analyzed. The study was carried out in the municipalities of: Matías Romero Avendaño, El Barrio de la Soledad, San Juan Guichicovi and Chahuites, with a total of 24 surveys, and has a quantitative and qualitative approach. It was supported by office work and field work, the latter carried out in the month of August, 2013. The results indicate that honey making is a pertinent way to diversify the income, given that in addition to generating employment at times of less activity in the agricultural activities, it is profitable and constitutes an option for the rural production units, especially the smallest ones. In the scenarios analyzed, it could be validated that what was invested in the activity exceeds the recuperation of an equivalent investment in promissory notes of fixed rent.
