Only 10% of Scottish farmers are in favour of independence, according to a survey carried out by the National Farm Research Unit (NFRU).
The survey found that 18.1% of Scots farmers were undecided about independence with the majority – 71.8% – against.
Farmers from the rest of the UK – England, Northern Ireland and Wales – were also surveyed with 63% in favour of Scotland remaining part of the UK.
NFRU managing director Jim Williams said: “Even allowing for a 5% confidence interval in the data, this survey sends a clear message from the farming community that farmers across the UK, and particularly Scottish farmers, want Scotland to stay part of a united kingdom.”
The survey was carried out over a three-month period between April and June, with NFRU interviewing a representative sample of farmers in Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales.
