The Agrarian Union "Aleksandar Stamboliyski" (Bulgarian: Земеделски съюз „Александър Стамболийски“, Zemedelski Sayuz "Aleksandar Stamboliyski", ZS-AS), is a progressive agrarian political party in Bulgaria.

It was founded in 1993 by members of the Bulgarian Agrarian People's Union. Until 2005 it was known as the Bulgarian Agrarian People's Union "Aleksandar Stamboliyski" (Balgarski Zemedelski Naroden Sajuz "Alexander Stambolijski", BZNS-AS). Since 2001 it is part of the Coalition for Bulgaria, an alliance led by the Bulgarian Socialist Party.

At the Bulgarian parliamentary election in 2009, the Coalition for Bulgaria received 17.7% of the popular vote and 40 out of 240 seats. The party had only 1 seat for its leader Panchev.
