IBARRA GONZALEZ, Cinthia Vanesa et al. Profitability of the sugar cane with organic and conventional management. Idesia [online]. 2018, vol.36, n.3, pp.5-13. ISSN 0718-3429.

Jalisco has been growing sugarcane for 30 years in the Autlán Valley - El Grullo - El Limón, representing one of the most productive areas in the state. The change in price in the market of inputs and the final product, generate uncertainty towards producers who lack information on profitability in this productive activity. The objective of this research was to compare the profitability of cane cultivation under two types of management; the organic and the conventional. An economic-productive study was conducted through interviews with producers located in the valley in the year of 2016, a profitability analysis was carried out for a 5-year projection under 3 scenarios. The results of the benefit / cost ratio, the net present value and the internal rate of return indicate that organic management tends to be more profitable, according to the scenarios analyzed, when compared to conventional management.

Palabras clave : Sugar cane; organic management; conventional management; profitability.
