ABSTRACT -This study aims at identifying by zoning the mesoregion of Vale do Rio Doce edaphoclimatic aptitude for the commercial production of banana. The factors used in the agro-climatic zoning were temperature, altitude, rainfall, water deficit and soil type. Information on the thermal conditions was acquired from the INMET and also using estimates from a mathematical model. Altimetry data were acquired using digital elevation model generated from ASTER images. Rainfall data were collected from literature …
