Préférence des agriculteurs pour un contrat à paiement dégressif : un choice experiment

with Sandra Saïd


The Agri-Environmental Measures (AEM) scheme suffers from farmers’ low subscription for most demanding measures. This study examines the interest for implementation of a digressive payment in order to increase the farmers’ participation in measures. Indeed, such a payment takes into account potentials investments needed to be realized first years of subscription, and also farmers’ preference for the present. We realized a choice experiment on 102 farmers located in the Regional Natural Park Volcans d’Auvergne. Results show that there is not a clear preference for a digressive payment. However, we observe that there is strong heterogeneity in farmers’ contract characteristics preferences. It needs to take into account this heterogeneity in order to improve the agri-environment scheme efficiency.
