Among the seed (bulb) and in natura even with the risk of losses with fungal or bacterial their culture is considered a good harvest, because the climate is very favorable to its cultivation, detailing its costs of production and the difference between the crop seed and in natura. This study has used the Multi-index methodology to the analyzes and calculations for the comprehensive, such as: analysis of the 8.25% ROIA for garlic in natura and 7.44% in garlic seed on the initial investment. The cash flow based on monthly statements, involving expenditure on machinery, preparation of the land, among others. An initial investment of R$ 39.756,64 for both harvests. Getting a VPL R$63.188,55 for garlic in natura and R$54.303,99 for garlic seed, its IBC considering the values of 2.59% for garlic in natura and 2.37 for garlic seed. The information about TMA/TRI were well satisfactory for the return of the harvest, as all cultures have risks, this harvest is approximately 50% for both types being in the seed and in natura.
