Abstract

La Bretagne est une région fortement agricole située au nord-ouest de la France. Outre la pression urbaine, la compétition pour les terres agricoles est renforcée par les fortes contraintes environnementales présentes dans cette région. L’objectif de ce papier est d’étudier les déterminants du prix des terres agricoles et en particulier les effets de ces contraintes environnementales. La mise en place des politiques environnementales a abouti à un zonage complexe de la région caractérisé par différentes mesures réglementaires. Pour tenir compte de ces caractéristiques locales, nous utilisons un modèle de prix hédonique et nous nous intéressons aux potentielles dépendances spatiales entre les prix des terres. Pour l’application empirique, des données concernant les transactions de terres agricoles réalisées en Bretagne de 2007 à 2010 sont utilisées. Les résultats montrent une augmentation ou une diminution du prix des terres dans les zones environnementales sensibles selon le type de mesures politiques mises en œuvre dans ces zones.
