Ornamental bulbs in Brazil

The ornamental bulbs market in Brazil, in 2010, moved a total value of exports of U.S. $ 13- 14 million and imported U.S. $ 7.3 million. This paper presents the results of a survey from the flower markets of São Paulo, in addition to data and information obtained from the major producers of ornamental bulbs. The main species cultivated in Brazil and marketed as cut flowers and pot are: Alstroemeria sp., Hyppeastrum sp., Zantedeschia sp., Gladiolus X grandiflorus, Hemerocallis sp. and Lilium sp. It was noted that production and, consequently, the market is growing, but the country faces a major obstacle with respect to the internal laws governing the protection of plant cultivars and the use of chemical pesticides.
