[eng] Is forestry a profitable option for farmers? - We analyze the economic profitability of forestry production for farmers in Midi-Pyrénées (France). We first define the economic criteria used. We then present the different wood production a farmer can develop. The third section is devoted to characterize the economic profitability of these options which are then compared with the profitability of crop production. We show that forest production by farmers is unlikely. However, within the new common agricultural policy reform which introduces decoupled payments, agroforestry [fre] L'objectif de cet article est d'analyser en détail l'intérêt économique que peut constituer le boisement de terres agricoles. Dans une première section, nous définissons les critères économiques utilisés. Nous présentons ensuite les principaux scénarios de boisement que nous étudions. La troisième partie est consacrée à l'évaluation de la rentabilité économique des différents scénarios de boisement. Celle-ci est comparée à la rentabilité des cultures annuelles dans une quatrième partie. Nous montrons notamment qu'en l'état actuel des réglementations (PAC et forestières) le boisement des terres agricoles est peu probable. Dans le cadre de la réforme de la PAC et de la mise en place d'aides découplées l'agroforeste- rie pourrait trouver un certain intérêt.
