ABSTRACT
The article deals with the controversy concerning a survey conducted by the National Farmers' Union (NFU), which asked farmers in Great Britain on whether the Agricultural and Horticultural Development Board should support the Red Tractor. Of the 1035 votes cast 24% said yes and 76% said no. However, investigations revealed that 600 votes originated from the same location and that the votes were cast in batches of 30, rather than singly, and were all against.
