UK Public Poll Predicts Increased Importance for Farming

A recent poll conducted by the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) ad published by Farmers Weekly magazine shows that 84% of people across England and Wales think that farming will become more important in the coming years.

Seven out of 10 people also look favourably on farmers, and 96% said that it was more important for UK farmers to grow crops than to maintain food paths.

Perhaps, this survey is an indication that food security issues are being prioritised by the UK public and that farmers and farming play important roles in supporting the greater economy.
