Abstract:

This research includes the study of the Urban Agriculture theme for the production of commercial vegetables in Jataí city, located in the Southwest of Goiás State. The aim of this study is to identify the profile of urban farmers and to spatialize production areas in City. For this understanding, the research was developed through the following activities: bibliographical surveys, application of semi structured interviews with the farmers of the urban perimeter and field work, in order to verify the operation of this practice in the city. Based on the data collected, it was possible to find rural characteristics in the city of Jataí, which may be a reflection of the peasant who was expelled from the countryside and "took refuge" in the city, bringing with him characteristic customs of the rural area, urban space. In view of the paths traced by the research, it was identified that the profile of the urban farmer of Jataí is within the hypothesis of the work, since, through interviews and data collected, it was possible to verify that the same or, for the most part, are migrants from the rural environment and from other regions. Thus, they came to Jataí city in search of work, however, as in most cases such individuals do not have qualification, they aligned themselves with the activities that fit them, in this case urban agriculture. It was also verified that the greatest time of exercise of the activity is 19 years. It was also possible to verify two profiles of farmers, the first one with commercial purposes and who see in urban agriculture a lucrative business opportunity and the second presents an age group that stands out to 60 years or more, which reported the experiences of life in the middle rural and practice time of the activity in the city of Jataí, which reinforces the hypothesis of the research.
