Abstract


Due to the importance of the flower and ornamental plants sector in Brazilian agribusiness, studies that analyze the situation of its different segments can help to understand and establish policies and actions that support and stimulate their development. The objective was to analyze the profile and behavior of consumers in the productive chain of flowers and ornamental plants. For this, a questionnaire with direct questions was prepared and directed to consumers of flowers and ornamental plants. The application was made personally with direct approaches in places of great movement and specialized technological fairs, and also online through social media, using Google platform. The results were analyzed by comparing qualitative variables using the Chi-Square test. It was identified that the profile of consumers is concentrated in women who live in large cities, consuming an average of R$ 100.00 to R$ 200.00 over a period of one year.
