This paper presents a case study of the relationship between farmers' knowledge of maize varieties and their selection and management of these varieties under conditions of technological change.

Research for this paper was done among Spanish-speaking small farmers in an ejidoof central Chiapas, Mexico. This ejido is well integrated into the market, and the use of modem technologies is Cited by:   Mexico is within the center of origin of Zea mays and has among the highest levels of maize genetic diversity in the world.

This diversity is traced to factors at the regional and farm levels. Loss of crop genetic diversity has been related to economic and agricultural development, although opposed views of this exist for the Mexican by:   Mexico has suffered grave consequences from the import model.

In the 20 years since the North American Free Trade Agreement [NAFTA, signed between Mexico, Canada, and the US in ] was passed, 20% of the population has become hungry, 70% has become underweight, and more than 6 million citizens have emigrated.
