Farmers Facing Traceability:

A case-study approach from Burgundy, France

It is widely recognized, both within and beyond farming communities, that paperwork levels have increased for farmers in recent decades, as government agencies and private certification bodies alike seek to reassure anxious consumers about the integrity of their food supply.But how exactly have recordkeeping practices in agriculture changed over time?What are the formal and functional differences between internal (produced on the farm, for the farm) and external (produced by and for others) documentary requirements?Is paperwork purely burdensome, or is it mixed in its effects?This presentation will report preliminary results from a projected two-year study of recordkeeping practices among farmers in Burgundy and Lancashire as they relate to new and existing demands for traceability in agriculture.
