Resumo: Cape Verde is largely dependent on overseas countries with regard to food. Local production is limited, but relevant to food security. This dissertation aims to study the role that agricultural production, namely horticulture, production of rainfed crops and production of sugar cane has on the producers income, food security and improving the quality of life of households. We conducted a case study in the municipality of Ribeira Grande, island of Santo Antão. Surveys were conducted in the localities of Ribeirão and Garça de Cima (105 family household), equally distributed among horticulture farmers, producers of sugar cane and rainfed farmers. It was found that sugar cane producers have a median annual income greater than that of horticulture and rainfed farmers (402154, 337602 and 259764 cape verdeans escudos, respectively). In terms of quality of life indicators horticulture farmers and sugar cane producers have similar results, superior to the rainfed crops systems. In regard to nutritional status, the differences are not relevant. Horticulture farmers have a calorie intake of 2959.71, rainfed producers 2926.65 and producers of sugar cane 2888.86 kcal/EH/d. Regarding protein consumption, horticulture farmers have an intake of 103.12, rainfed farmers of 97.23 and sugar cane producers of 92.05 g/EH/d.
