Typologie des producteurs de légumes bio dans le Lot - Enquête auprès des agriculteurs : quels sont leurs besoins et leurs caractéristiques techniques, sociologiques et économiques ?

Abstract : Market-gardening farming, characterised by small surfaces and revenues, as well as diversified production and strong use of short supply chains, are facing multiple issues, such as marketing, technical obstacles or work organisation. However, the revival of interest to locally grown quality food in society leads consumers to seek organic local products, and there is an opportunity. This survey aims to improve the knowledge about each farmers and to provide an overview to the market-gardening practices in the Lot. Through questionnaires by phone interviews, many data were collected, allowing to build a typology of the farmers. 42 farmers answered, and they were then analysed as forming 3 groups: the “légumiers”, specialized (2.5 vegetable on average), using wholesaling and producing higher volumes on larger surfaces ; the “maraichers diversifiés”, who grow around 22 vegetables and sell on diverse short supply chains ; and the “nouveaux installés”, the new farmers (less than 3 years), diversified and with a different background. Differences and similarities have been analysed, and their needs and issues have been identified. This knowledge will serve as a starting point to develop adapted projects to improve their performance and articulate the short supply chain in the Lot.
