Women who are current or former students of agriculture and related courses are being invited to complete a new survey.

The James Hutton Institute are running the survey as part of a Scottish Government-funded research project looking at women in agriculture.

They are inviting women who are current or former students of agriculture and courses such as agricultural economics, rural business management, equine and horse care and large veterinary practice at college or university level in Scotland to take part in the online survey.

The survey focuses on the experiences and perspectives of agriculture students, past and present, who may or may not be living on farms, crofts or smallholdings.

It looks at where women go following agricultural training/education, and what factors influence their career decisions and career trajectory. The survey will remain open until 15 November 2016.

Complete the survey

All responses will be anonymous and will be treated confidentially.

Women who do not live and/or work on farms, but who contribute to the agriculture sector in other ways, have been participating in the research through interviews and focus groups across Scotland.

For further information about the project, or if you would like to participate in the interviews or focus groups, please contact the Hutton project leader, Dr Lee-Ann Sutherland, telephone: 01224 395 285 or email Lee-Ann.Sutherland@hutton.ac.uk.
