TAMAYO ESCOBAR, Yorkis et al. Agroecological Practices on Private Farms in the Province of Camagüey, Cuba. Rev. prod. anim. [online]. 2017, vol.29, n.1, pp.26-29. ISSN 2224-7920.

The aim of this research was to gather together the dairy farms of the José Antonio Echeverría Strengthened Cooperative of Credit and Services (CCSF) in the province of Camagüey, Cuba, according to the frequency of application or no application of agroecological practices, and their relationship with some bioproductive variables of economic interest. The information compiled for three years was used. Three groups were arranged based on hierarchical cluster analysis. The grouping system used was the link between groups. The measure criteria used was the Euclidean Squared Distance for agroecological practices by the farmers. SPSS 21.0 was used for statistical analysis. The groups made were considering the factor to perform variance analysis (ANOVA), with eight dependent variables. The Tukey multiple comparison test was made to the variables that showed differences for P < 0.05. A total of seven out of ten agroecological practices applied that influenced on the behavior of bioproductive indicators, were identified. Group three included the farms with the best results, and the highest number of agroecological practices.
