This paper identifies and analyses the role of the Common AgriculturalPolicy (CAP) in affecting the spatial location of agricultural activities in an area ofnorthern Italy. The study is based on survey data (300 observations) regarding thestated intentions of farm households under two CAP scenarios, and uses statisticalanalysis to identify the potential determinants of different farm reactions, usingexplicit spatial information (altitude, Less Favoured Area status, agrarian regions).The study demonstrates the relevance of explicitly addressing the differentiatedspatial effect of the CAP on different dimensions of agricultural activities. However,the work also highlights the limitations of such a location-based analysis comparedwith both non-spatial variables and more 'functional' spatial variables.
