Résumé (UniCat)
This research on the water motor-pump takes place in the general framework of technology transfer in rural Moroccan areas and its impact on farmers’ operating systems and on sustainable agriculture. This problematic is based on the general finding related to the importance of water for the current and future development of the country, and on the lack of studies about the subterranean water exploitation by water motor-pump in Morocco despite its large-scale diffusion especially in the small and middle hydraulic areas like the Saïs zone (Fez-Meknes), regions for which the public authorities have an increasing interest. The specific objectives of this research consist in making a current situation diagnosis on internal and external factors which encourage adoption of this innovation by farmers, to assess its impact on their activities systems and suggest a study of the sustainability of carried-out operating systems. This study has been conducted with a systemic approach integrating the different actors concerned by exploitation and management of water in the region (294 farmers including 224 peoples using a motor-pump, 20 peoples responsible for extension work and 15 water administrators). Positive and perverse effects of water motor-pump diffusion in the region were analyzed by quantitative and qualitative indicators. Results obtained permitted to make the current situation of water motor-pump diffusion diagnostic and to suggest some practical recommendations to secure the sustainability of agriculture in the region.
