Abstract The current challenge for agriculture is to maintain food supply by reducing environmental impacts and promoting the production of ecosystem services (ES) which contribute to human well-being. Beyond its main goal which is to provide food and fiber, agriculture can also produce many (dis-)services. Indeed, for centuries, agriculture uses large quantities of land and the provision of ES relies on agricultural practices and spatial context. Many ES have no explicit market value although they provide us many benefits. It is mainly regulation services such as erosion control, water quality regulation or carbon storage.
