Kouakou Valère Kouassi, Sophie Pulchérie Tape
Face with the demographic growth of towns and the various constraints linked to the supply of the town of Bouaké with food products by the peasants of the rural area surrounding the town, the question arises of knowing the gain that can get the peasant from his agricultural activity. This study aims to better understand the gain the producer can derive from his agricultural activity by supplying the town of Bouaké with food products. The research methodology used revolves around documentary research and field research through questionnaires and direct observation while remaining within the framework of Von Thünen's theory in our various analyzes. The results of this study claim that the main food crops sold by the farmers are groundnut, cassava, chilli, eggplant. The peasant income derived from the city's supply remain weak.
