Abstract

The guiding questions were: understanding of farmers in relation to the concept of the term Area of Permanent Preservation (APP); the interest of farmers in recovering APPs; the difficulties of farmers in relation to legal limitations to the APPs. The data collected were subjected to descriptive statistical analysis and determined the absolute frequency (Fj) e relative frequency (fj), they were interpreted by drafting tables.
