POWER|FARMERs demand production conditions in line with international standards
Results from our farmers panel
What measures should policy-makers take to secure the future of farms? In October 2022 Produkt + Markt conducted a survey among n = 200 farmers in the POWER|FARMER Panel.
The result: The adaptation of production conditions and requirements to international standards is seen as the most important lever.
With their answers to the prompted question about the desired political focus, farmers show that they see themselves at a disadvantage internationally. Half of the respondents would like to see production conditions brought into line with international standards and about a quarter demand higher government rewards for environmentally and animal-friendly management. In third place comes the desire for political influence on prices and production volumes. A further increase in production efficiency, on the other hand, is only seen by a few as a guarantee for a secure future.
