    Este trabalho propõe analisar o retorno econômico e o impacto ambiental da atividade recria e engorda na pecuaria de corte, resultantes da utilização do amendoim forrageiro nas pastagens no Acre. Para determinar o retorno econômico foi estimado o benefício econômico gerado pelo sistema que utiliza o amendoim forrageiro em pastagens já estabelecidas, tendo como parâmetro o sistema que utiliza pastagens formadas com o “capim estrela” (Cynodon nlemfuensis). A avaliação dos impactos ambientais foi realizada em conformidade com o sistema de avaliação de impacto ambiental da inovação tecnológica agropecuária (AMBITEC-AGRO). Os resultados mostram que o Índice de Impacto Ambiental médio da inovação tecnologica foi positivo. Portanto, a tecnologia, no aspecto geral, contribui para a melhoria do meio ambiente. Enquanto no Aspecto econômico a inovação tecnologica contribuiu para o aumento da produtividade do rebanho, proporcionando ganhos econômicos na ordem de R$ 744,58 por hectare.----------------------------------------------This study proposes to analyze the economic return and environmental impact of activity growing and fattening in cattle beef, resulting from the use of forage peanut on Acre pasture. To determine the economic return was estimated economic benefit generated by the system that uses forage peanut in pastures already established, taking as a parameter the system that uses pastures formed with the “grass star” (Cynodon nlemfuensis). The environmental impact evaluation was conducted in accordance with the system of environmental impact evaluation of technological innovation agriculture (AMBITEC-AGRO). Results showed that the Environmental Impact Index mean technological innovation has been positive. So the technology, in general terms, contributes to the environment improvement. While in economic aspect the technological innovation contributed to the increase in herd productivity, providing economic gains in the order of R$ 744.58 per hectare.
