The Llobregat delta is located near Barcelona. It has been traditionally a privileged area for agricultural activities. However, the land pressure owing to the expansion of the city, with its infrastructures, transport links, industries and installations of services has stopped the agricultural progress. Nowadays the agricultural sector is minor in the conglomeration of Barcelona and the farmers can't prevent the disappearance of agricultural lands. Actually, most of them are the active agents of the reconversion of crop lands. The authorities propose solutions, but the problem becomes serious in Catalonia when it's farming the profession which is questioned. In this context, the production function of farmers must find its own role in the multifunctional suburban spaces. © Sud-Ouest Européen.
