AFBF polls finds public support for farmers

Survey explores public trust for farmers and public's opinion about sustainability efforts used by farmers.

A new national public opinion poll from the American Farm Bureau Federation finds a majority of U.S. adults have a positive view of farmers' sustainability practices and trust farmers.

The survey of 2,200 U.S. adults found that more than half (58%) rate the sustainability practices of U.S. farmers positively, with broad agreement from a majority of adults across demographic groups.

The survey also revealed there is still work to be done to increase awareness of agriculture’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S.

“Americans have a high level of trust in farmers, and they understand that we’re committed to protecting the soil, air and water,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “Our survey demonstrates that Americans are impressed by advancements in climate-smart farming and we look forward to building on that success.”
