Take part in CLA and Strutt & Parker ‘Future of Farming’ survey

1 min

A new survey designed to gather insight into how quickly farmers and landowners are responding to the changing world they find themselves operating in, has been launched by Strutt & Parker and the CLA. 

The rural sector is facing a huge amount of change in terms of agricultural policy and the wider challenges posed by high input prices, volatile commodity markets and global supply chain issues.

It has been 18 months since the Agriculture Act came into force in England marking the start of the seven-year Agricultural Transition Plan (ATP). Farmers in Wales and Scotland are also facing significant changes as successor schemes to the CAP are gradually introduced.

The ‘Future of Farming’ survey aims to capture farmer attitudes to some of the new schemes being introduced, identify how farms and estates are trying to build resilience and explore how receptive land managers are to the idea of land use change.

The results will feed into the CLA’s advocacy work and help with policy development. 

The findings will also be used in conjunction with Strutt & Parker in relation to the CLA’s Reimagining Land Use Event on the 14th September. 

We will treat all responses you provide as confidential and anonymous in any results that either the CLA or Strutt & Parker publishes.

The survey closes on the 31st July 2022
