Dynamiques territoriales du bioalimentaire au Québec

Read the full report

Agricultural production has experienced radical transformation over the last few decades: specialization of enterprises, concentration within ever-larger companies, industrialization of production processes and intensification of resource use. However, these developments in agricultural production mask differences between sectors. How has the sectoral evolution of agricultural production shaped Quebec's territories? In a CIRANO study (Royer et al. 2023), the authors 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.
