Localisation de l’agriculture biologique et accès aux marchés

Abstract : The objective of this paper is to contribute to the analysis of the implications of Organic Farming (OF) development on its location, often analyzed in terms of “conventionalization”. OF spatial distribution in France shows major contrasts at different scales, regions, departments and localities. We highlight a complex effect of the urban network on OF localization, depending on the size of cities, which seem to attract OF producers in providing direct outlets, and at the same time reject them, due to the limitations of access to land. In total, a differentiation of the OF diffusion dynamics is confirmed: a spatial diffusion resulting from a wider distribution of organic products in the retail systems and the resulting demand addressed to the conventional food provisions system to enlarge their activities and include organic products, a concentration due to the proximity of consumers based on farmers markets and short circuits.
