Summary

In Rio Branco, Acre, by the convention INPA/BANACRE, was started in 1978 the installation of a project of tropical fruit culture. There were selected 10 small scale farmers with low income and were selected also the follewing fruit species: Annona muricata L., Rollinia mucosa (Jacq.) Baill., Matisia cordata (H.B.K.) = Quararibea cordata (Humb. & Bonpl.) Vischer, Arthocarpus incisa L., Pourouma cecropiaefolia Mart., Euterpe oleracea Mart., Bactris gasipaes H.B.K. = Guilielma gasipaes (H.B.K.) Bailey, Achras sapota L. = Manilkara zapota (L.) van Royen, Pouteria caimito (Ruiz & Pav.) Radlk and Theobroma grandiflorum (Willd & Spreng) Schum. These species were collected in several regions in the Amazon basin. There is being made a constant evaluation of several characters to form an information bank and to evaluate the adaptation of the species. In the period of November/78 to February/80, were planted 49 ha on 6 properties, and until March/81 there will be planted more 51 ha, to reach the ideal of 10 ha 10 properties (100 ha).
