O objetivo deste estudo foi analisar a influência do PRONAF - Programa Nacional de Fortalecimento da Agricultura Familiar sobre os indicadores agrícolas: produção, área plantada e produtividade das lavouras de subsistências beneficiadas pelo Programa no Estado do Ceará, no período de 1999 a 2005. A pesquisa aplicou análises tabular e gráfica para estudar o comportamento das variáveis. Os resultados registraram que as lavouras de subsistência mais beneficiadas pelo Programa foram: algodão, arroz, cana-de-açúcar, feijão, mandioca e milho. Uma comparação destas lavouras com outras não beneficiadas: banana, castanha de caju e mamona revelou que apesar do financiamento as lavouras beneficiadas pelo PRONAF obtiveram um desempenho inferior ao das não beneficiadas em relação aos indicadores agrícolas analisados. Concluiu-se que a influência do PRONAF no desempenho dos indicadores agrícolas das lavouras de subsistência é muito pequena. --------------------------------------------The objective of this study was to analyze influence the PRONAF - National Program of Fortifies of Familiar Agriculture on the agricultural pointers: production, planted area and productivity of subsistences the farmings benefited for the Program in the State of the Ceará, the period 1999 to 2005.
