|Home > ANÁLISE COMPARATIVA DA VIABILIDADE ECONÔMICA DOS SISTEMAS DE PRODUÇÃO CONVENCIONAL E INTEGRADO DE CAFÉ|
Due to growing consumer demands regarding product quality and the social and environmental aspects of the production process, there is a need to redefine the agricultural productive structure so as to make it sustainable. The Integrated Production System in Coffee (CIP) aims to meet these new requirement standards. The system, however, is still very recent and requires more detailed studies to identify its strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, the objective of this work is to carry out a comparative analysis of the economic viability and the risk associated to the conventional and integrated systems of coffee production in the farm property of São João, in the Coimbra district in Minas Gerais state. The method used was the calculation of the viability and returns dispersion pointers (internal return tax, net present value, payback and coefficient of variation period). Risk analysis was done through the Monte Carlo simulation. According to the values found for the pointers calculated, it was concluded that the integrated production system is more viable in the property analyzed and also less subject to risks.
