Les agricultures biologiques dans la Drôme (1980-2010) : une étude historique prometteuse

Abstract : Considered crazy in the past, organic farmers have, since their official recognition in 1980, a special status that put them as the new hope of French agriculture, which encountered some troubles in the last few years. While many disciplines study the organic agriculture, History is still sceptical, and only one historian took the challenge to start researches, mixing rural history and environmental history. However, this study encounters difficulties since the public archives are still weak due to the marginality, and late recognition of this exercise. Therefore, it is essential to use the archives of the main characters of organic agriculture, but above all, it is essential to blend research with a thorough field study. To show that History can commit to this analysis, this thesis points out the means of disseminating the information of this profession, between 1980 and 2010, to the organic farmers based in Drôme, leading organic department in France for years, by the numbers of farmers and producers. More precisely, this thesis studies the magazine AplusB, of the organization Agribiodrôme, which evolved during this period of time. Basically being an internal paper, introducing the organization’s actions, it slowly turns into a journal of opinion, where news from organic agriculture and critical reviews blend together.
