Territorial dynamics of biofood in Quebec

Agricultural production has undergone major transformations in recent decades: specialization of companies, concentration within ever-larger organizations, industrialization of production processes and intensification of resource use. However, these developments in agricultural production mask differences between sectors.

How sectoral evolution in agricultural production has shaped Quebec's territories?

In a CIRANO study, Annie Royer and Patrick Mundler, both professors at Université Laval and CIRANO researchers, and Julie Ruiz, professor at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, analyze the spatial dynamics of the bio-food sector over more than five decades, and identify the main factors behind these dynamics. This is the first study to examine the links between spatial dynamics and sectoral evolution in agriculture.
