EVALUATION DE SYSTEMES DE PRODUCTION INNOVANTS INSCRITS EN AGRICULTURE DURABLE : LE CAS DES SYSTEMES BOVINS HERBAGERS DU HAUT-BOCAGE POITEVIN

Abstract : Since 1990, farmers of Poitou's Haut-Bocage (center West of France) have set up cattle grassland systems based upon André Pochon‘s Britain example and largely based on grazing of temporary grass-clover pastures. Adapted by farmers' groups to the specific pedoclimatic conditions of this region, these innovative systems create high value added by important cost savings, in complete contrast to the main agricultural development in the region, aiming at increasing work productivity thanks to the growth of production per hectare and per worker. The effects of grassland systems implementation in this region are appraised by using the concept of production system and the methods of project's assessment (comparison of a grassland scenario and a counterfactual scenario), from standpoint of both farmers and the whole national economy. The results of the differential between this two scenarios point out that farmers benefit from higher incomes and less working load and that, between 1990 and 2009, this implementation allowed net national income increase, 50% more farmers' job creation and a better labour remuneration in all the sectors. These less subsidized cattle grassland systems, characterized by a higher social and environmental viability, also allowed to cut down public expenditures.
