ABSTRACTThe products of acaí (Euterpe oleracea Mart.) have great economic and cultural importance in Brazil with a growing consumer market. Seeking to provide a basis for the expansion of this crop in other states, we sought to develop the agroclimatic zoning for this crop in the state of Espírito Santo. Therefore, we used data from 110 meteorological stations and governmental geotecnologic's tool ArcGIS 10.1 for spatialize temperature data, precipitation and water deficit and then reschedule them for the generation of zoning. The results showed that 20.74% of the total area of the Espírito Santo has areas suitable to this culture, located in the Northeastern, Southern and mountainous, with Linhares the municipality with the highest fitness. Although most of the state has some kind of constraint that limits the cultivation, whether the variable is water deficit precipitation, some techniques can minimize such restrictions. Thus, it becomes feasible to implement the culture of acai in the state of Espírito Santo according to the variables temperature, precipitation and water deficit.
