Farmer Responses to Brexit: Attitudes towards Risk in Scottish Farming – Briefing Note

The UK’s withdrawal from the European Union presents multiple uncertainties for farm management planning. Encouraging growth within the agricultural economy requires some acceptance of risk within farming decision making.  This briefing note outlines the results of a survey of 2,494 farmers, crofters and smallholders, run during the summer of 2018, on their approaches towards farming and how this may affect business planning post-Brexit.

The briefing can be downloaded in full below. For any further details, or questions or comments, please contacted Professor Andrew Barnes (andrew.barnes@sruc.ac.uk) or Jenny MacMillan (jenny.mcmillan@sruc.ac.uk).
