Abstract

Ce texte aborde l'analyse théorique des politiques de réduction de l'offre agricole via l'incitation ou l'obligation au gel de terres. Le modèle proposé repose sur la théorie des contrats dans un cadre d'autosélection. Il permet d'évaluer l'impact de l'asymétrie d'information, portant sur les rendements des exploitations agricoles, sur les politiques optimales de prix garanti et de gel de terres. Plus précisément, l'analyse porte d'une part sur une politique contractuelle de retrait des terres proposant un transfert en contrepartie d'un effort de gel de terres, et d'autre part sur une politique de gel obligatoire s'imposant à toutes les exploitations et ignorant les contraintes d'incitation. Des simulations numériques permettent de comparer les résultats de ces différentes politiques.
