Recent agricultural development schemes in southern Quintana Roo and Campeche, Mexico, have focused on mechanized cultivation and livestock rearing that are intended to increase food production in this tropical realm. The region abounds with vestiges of intensive agricultural techniques utilized by the Maya, including terraces and raised fields. These forms of intensive input/output cultivation are probably applicable in the region today and offer an alternative to the government sponsored programs that would increase agricultural output through the use of traditional agricultural methods. - English summary
