Politiques publiques agricoles et changement des pratiques, étude de cas dans les coteaux de Gascogne (31)

Abstract : From a study conducted with farmers – acting on fours cities of Gascogne’ hillsides (Haute-­Garonne - 31) in various situations – supplemented by interviews of professionals in consulting, management and administration of agricultural world, we analyze the report that farmers have with agricultural policies, related to the challenges of setting up an agroecological transition. Agricultural policies appear as a farmer’s reason to act. There is a direct link between agricultural policies devices and changing agricultural practices, whose reasons vary according to the farmers (constraint, opportunity to change or opportunism to support the farming system). Collectively, it results in generalized adaptability of farmers regarding to agricultural policies, that they perceive negatively, although this ability is constrained by the CAP system weight. The study shows that agroecological issues, although better taken into account in agricultural policies, are not necessarily considered as a priority by farmers. They design their farming systems through a complex cognitive schema of decision-­making, composed by a bundle of factors that can influence each other, which can produce distinct effects from those expected by agricultural policies. This work is part of a broader reflection, carried by COTERRA project (COnsultation at the TERRitorial level for Agroecology) from DYNAFOR laboratory of INRA, which aims to consider the underlying issues to actually setting up an agroecological transition.
