This article analyzes the competitiveness of pejibaye heart of palm production in Brazil, doing one comparative study among the productive system practiced in flat areas with irrigation and in hilly areas without irrigation. For this, the policy analysis matrix (PAM) was utilized. The results showed evidence that the two production systems considered had positive profitability in domestic and international markets, demonstrating that the production of pejibaye palm of heart is competitive; however, the profits were reduced by the public policies adopted.
