The Scottish Government has commissioned research to build a picture of the role women play in agriculture across Scotland.

Research undertaken in other parts of the UK, Europe and beyond shows that women’s work on farms is under-reported and women are not well represented in agricultural organisations, but there has been no research in Scotland.

We invite women who live or work on farms to complete the survey. Focus groups and interviews will be also conducted with both women and men working in the agriculture sector, including those who do not live on farms.

Findings will help to inform the development of government policy interventions. All responses will be strictly confidential.
