Resumen

ANDRADE, Claudia M  y  AYAVIRI, Víctor D. Environmental Issues and Food Security in Guano, Ecuador. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.5, pp.233-242. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642017000500022.

The objective of this research was to study how the environmental issues affect the production of potato (solanum tuberosum) and its relationship with food security in Guano-Ecuador. To do this, a survey was conducted on a rural population in order to construct a simple linear regression model, which was complemented by field observations and interviews. The main findings were moorland's destruction, increase of pests and diseases in the crops, environmental contamination with domestic waste, and frost. These environmental changes were the result of the excessive use of pesticides, lack of domestic waste treatment, monoculture, and deforestation caused by the growth of the agricultural frontier. In summary, the environmental changes have affected potato production, but they do not determine or compromise the food security of the population.

Palabras clave : environmental issues; potatoes production; food security; population; foods.
