This study characterizes, from a productive and socioeconomic point of view, the cattle farms in Cantabrian Cornice and Spain, besides analyzing recent evolution of the main adjustment indicators between 2007 and 2016. In doing so, we have analyzed the main agricultural magnitudes, relative to the number of farms, land, livestock, labor and economic value of production. The results obtained show a territorial concentration, specialization and productive concentration of the cattle, together with an advance of the structural adjustment process.

Global G.A.P. compliance has often become a key requirement for farmers to ac- cess high-value global markets. Yet, the global spread of certification is highly un- even among countries. We assess the drivers and dynamics behind these unequal patterns, applying panel data regressions. Findings show that global agricultural trade networks remain relevant, but are no longer sufficient in explaining certifica- tion. Fostering a favourable business environment – via providing secure land tenure and a functioning judicial system – as well as investing in transportation and infor- mation infrastructure may facilitate farmers’ participation in certification schemes. Stringency of existing public regulations is helpful for overcoming entry barriers.
