Resumo

O objetivo principal deste trabalho é o de avaliar as atitudes dos pequenos produto- res em relação ao risco. Os dados foram obtidos de uma amostra de pequenos pro- dutores do Nordeste, entrevistados em três anos consecutivos. Utilizou-se da análise tabular e o modelo padrão E - V(que envolve média, desvio-padrão do lucro) e coefi- ciente de risco. As estimativas obtidas permitiram analisar o comportamento dos produtores quando a sua subsistência estava em risco, concluindo-se que é provável que os agricultores entrevistados sigam algum tipo de abordagem segurança-pri- meiro, sempre que a satisfação de suas necessidades básicas esteja em risco.
