Étude des freins et leviers à l'évolution des pratiques agricoles en Seine-et-Marne

Abstract : The French department of Seine-et-Marne is at a crossroads, between a land of dynamic cereal crops, and tough environmental stakes, particularly relating the preservation of tap water’s quality and the strong social demand of its people. Decreasing the use of plant health products in agriculture is a purpose that leads both the Department and the Chamber of Agriculture of Seine-et-Marne to jointly build new means in order to accompany a desired evolution of agricultural practices towards more resilient systems. So as to evaluate the technical, economical and sociological driving and hindering factors for this evolution, as well as the expectations of related cereal crops farmers in that matter, this study is based on 20 semi-directive inquiries, led according to the method of active listening. Apart from the detail of the observed driving and hindering factors, this study suggests a new grid, in order to a priori evaluate the evolution capacity of a farmer, based on our meetings and observations on the agriculture professionals. Six standards came out: the capacity of talking over one’s own agricultural practices with other people, the importance given to the productivity value in agriculture, the perception of the environment, the attention granted to crops observation, the autonomy in technical decision-making and the relation to non agricultural neighbourhood. This whole work aimed at suggesting action programs for the partner institutions to lead, that are described in the conclusion of this report.
