Asking farmers about their response to the proposed bond scheme.

This chapter discusses a postal survey of farmers conducted in the UK, Germany and Portugal (n=∼4500 in each country; response rate=40.2, 36.8, and 33.4%, respectively) aimed at determining their reactions to a proposed bond scheme as part of the Common Agricultural Policy reform in the EU. It presents farmers' views on the future of farming, their reactions to the decoupling of payments from current land use and production, their reactions to receiving bonds in lieu of support payments, their views on whether they will still be farming in 10 years, and their views on various statements on agricultural policy. The results of the survey go against most of the misgivings expressed in consultations with stakeholders.
