The data used in this study was collecty by interviewing fruit producers in the County of Aracti, Limoeiro do Norte e Quixeré. All the counties, after 1998 (the year of implantation of the Program) had improvement in technology use and increase in productivity. In most of the cases, an important benefit was the generation of local job opportunities.
