The Hitahdut HaMoshavot BeYehuda VeShomron (Hebrew: התאחדות המושבות ביהודה ושומרון, Association of moshavot in Judea and Samaria) was founded in Yavne'el in 1920, making it the oldest agricultural organisation in Israel. In 1927 it was expanded and renamed Hitahdut HaIkarim BeEretz Israel (Hebrew: התאחדות האיכרים בארץ ישראל, lit. Association of the Farmers in the Land of Israel). After Israeli independence it adopted its current name. The organisation was affiliated with the General Zionists, and later the Liberal Party. It published the weekly Bustenai periodical in conjunction with the General Zionists between 1929 and 1939.
