We established a direct relationship between market price, leaf area index and farmers’ behaviour for durum wheat cultivation in Southern Italy. Results are drawn from 15 years of satellite, economic and policy data and showed that, under the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the variation in vegetative land cover followed the same trend as the durum wheat market price, rather than weather and climate drivers. This was mainly due to the CAP’s reforms on market price distortion. Evidence is provided of farmers’ control on their cropping systems with high impacts of political and economic constraints.
