Andrezza Da Silva Machado Neto, Janie Mendes Jasmim


This work had the objectives of characterizing and identifying the main drawbacks on the production and commercialization of Heliconia, Alpinia, Etlingera e Anthurium in Rio de Janeiro State. The research data were generated by applying questionnaires, through visits and personal interviews with eleven, among the fourteen producers of the State. Most producers (73%) are in the activity for a period of five years or less. The activity is developed by a small number of producers, it is of secondary economical character, grown at field conditions (Heliconia, Alpinia and Etlingera) and under a shade house (Anthurium), predominantly, under an integrated fertilization management in a irrigated floriculture, whose main limitations are, in decreasing order of importance: deficiency in advertising the produce, in the produce flow, in specialized technical assistance; CADEG (Centro de Abastecimento do Estado da Guanabara) inadequate structure and the produce price. The market of tropical flowers in Rio de Janeiro appears as a commercial atmosphere not yet consolidated and demanding in marketing actions for its development.
