L’agroforesterie en Lorraine : de la connaissance des systèmes agroforestiers à l’évaluation de l’acceptabilité des systèmes intra-parcellaires et l’identification des leviers pour développer cette nouvelle pratique

Abstract : Agroforestry in temperate climates is part of the forward-looking practices, which have the support of the public policies thanks to its contribution to sustainable development. It has been designated as one of the ten keys of an agro-ecological project in France, named "Produisons autrement". In order to fit into the agroforestry development process, the Lorraine Regional Chamber of Agriculture wants to assess the potential of agroforestry systems in the soil-climate context in Lorraine. The question is now raised of the interests of farmers in adopting agroforestry. Qualitative surveys allowed addressing this issue through two complementary approaches: the first one aimed at knowing the existing agroforestry systems in Lorraine or the ones under consideration, the second one aimed at evaluating the opinion of the general farmer population about intra-plot agroforestry, seen as an innovative practice. A classification of the agroforestry systems in Lorraine has been built according to various criteria: composition and arrangement of the system components, functions of the system, particular adoption characteristics, and in some cases the farmer profile. Six agroforestry systems have been defined, giving an idea of the practice feasibility, and the characterization of their implementer will allow finding adapted tools to support the regional plantation dynamic. Furthermore, motivations and reluctances of farmers towards intra-plot agroforestry are different according to their willingness to adopt the practice, depending also on their knowledge degree of agroforestry. Moreover, agronomic benefits seem to be more preferable than economic benefits. This highlights the real need to popularize agroforestry in Lorraine and to make it more visible.
