Landscape dynamics increasingly challenge agronomists to explain how and why agricultural landscapes are designed and managed by farmers. Nevertheless, agronomy is rarely included in the wide range of disciplines involved in landscape research. In this paper, we describe how landscape agronomy can help explain the relationship between farming systems and… (More)
Landscape spatial organization (LSO) strongly impacts many environmental issues. Modelling agricultural landscapes and describing meaningful landscape patterns are thus regarded as key-issues for designing sustainable landscapes. Agricultural landscapes are mostly designed by farmers. Their decisions dealing with crop choices and crop allocation to land can… (More)

The agricultural landscape can be seen as an assemblage of farm territories. The way farmers organize these territories is a time AND spatial process. Understanding how a land-use succession (LUS) in a parcel depends on LUS of the neighbouring parcels is a milestone to understand the time-spatial organization of the landscape mosaic. In this work, we… (More)
