Agriculture et développement agricole.

Abstract : The agricultural sector still offers a lot of opportunities for ergonomists even if it looses its symbolic value and decreases in terms of working force. Questions addressed to ergonomics concern as well the design of working situations, the monitoring of dynamic processes (crops, herds, on-farm food processing), or the risks and accidents occurring on farms or work load. The increasing part of immaterial work and its link to increased control and technical regulations, change the farmers’ job and the required skills. As agriculture in performed by a lot of very small enterprises, the ergonomist has to innovate and to develop links which extensionists and advisors working in the sector. The ergonomists can then train these agents to work analysis and support them in building new skills which are now required to support farmers in keeping the control of the permanent changes occurring in their economical, regulatory and technical environment. The paper present these points and some of the methods which ergonomists have developed to work within this sector.
