    [fre] En Argentine, certaines villes disposant de services techniques importants sont en position de se saisir du mouvement de décentralisation pour intervenir dans le développement local des zones rurales. À partir d'entretiens avec les principaux acteurs de l'agriculture de deux districts du sud de la province de Buenos Aires comportant l'un une ville de 300 000 hab. et l'autre une ville de 13 000 hab., cet article montre qu'émergent de nouveaux modes d'intervention des villes dans le rural. Ils divergent de la politique de développement agricole menée par l'État et accompagnent des initiatives nombreuses, quoique discrètes, de familles et d'entreprises et une transformation profonde des territoires ruraux. [eng] are cities reinventing rural development? The cases of Bahla Blanca and Pigüé in Argentina - In Argentina cities with large technical departments are in a position to grasp the strong decentralisation movement in order to attempt implementing local development in rural areas. This paper uses interviews with the main agricultural stakeholders in two districts in the southern part of the province of Buenos Aires, including an average-sized city (300,000 inhabitants) and a town (13,000 inhabitants), to show that new rural intervention methods are being used. They differ from the agricultural development government's policy in the way they support many initiatives, some of them quite inconspicuous, from small farm families and local companies and represent an important transformation of rural territories.
