UNDERSTANDING FARMERS’ RESPONSES TO CAP REFORM

The 2014-2020 Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform defines new rules for farmers including regionalization, crop diversification and ecological focus area (EFA). This paper aims to evaluate farmers’ intention to modify their behaviour because of the CAP reform, using the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB). A questionnaire was submitted to 71 Italian durum wheat producers assessing their intention to change durum wheat surface and to maintain as EFA part of the arable land. Subjective norms affects intention to change durum wheat surface, while attitude drives intention to dedicate arable crop to EFA. Implications for policy makers and producers are discussed.
