CUELLAR, Eligia de la C et al. Sustainable land management plan for milk production at the UBPC Aguadita, Cienfuegos, Cuba. Pastos y Forrajes [online]. 2015, vol.38, n.4, pp.448-456. ISSN 0864-0394.

A work was conducted at the UBPC Aguadita, of the Rodas municipality _Cienfuegos province, Cuba_, in order to elaborate a sustainable soil management plan to increase milk production. The guide contained in the manual of procedures for the implementation of sustainable land use, was used. The steps of the guide allowed to conceive a non-experimental study, of correlational/multiple type, in which theoretical and practical methods were used with their corresponding techniques (interviews, surveys, document review, direct observation); and measurements were made on site, with the application of ten methodological tools. It was proven that the low milk production in the UBPC is mainly caused by the soil degradation, the low quality of the pastures and the deficient knowledge management, which coincides with the main barrier for the application of sustainable land management. From these results the sustainable management plan was elaborated, as a tool that contributes to develop actions that mitigate the negative impact of soil degradation on the milk yield of the farm.
