Capitão Poço is considered the land of orange, having citriculture as the main source of income of producers in the municipality. Among the citrus production, the production phases is, the production of seedlings, which is heavily developed and marketed in the community of Santa Luzia of Induá, rural area of the city. The research objective consisted of accomplishing a survey of the production and marketing of citrus seedlings as in paragraph 48, in the community of Santa Luzia of Induá, municipality of Capitão Poço/Pará. The study was carriedout based on structured questionnaires founded in 48, where 50 producers of seedlings assets were interviewed at random. The data were tabulated in an electronic spreadsheet Microsoft Excel 2010® and 2013® for analysis and results presented in charts and tables formats. The study found that a large proportion of small and medium-sized producers had little knowledge of the regulations, but the large nurseries had reasonable knowledge. Because of this, and because of lack of information, understanding and correct interpretation of the Normative Instruction, most of the producers were not adapting to the imposed legislation, being thus afraid of changing the way of cultivation, since they have been working for a long time with the production of seedlings in the soil.
