Fédération nationale des syndicats d'exploitants agricoles (English: National Federation of Agricultural Holders' Unions) is a French umbrella organisation charged with the national representation of 20,000 local agricultural unions and 22 regional federations.

Establishment[edit]

The Vichy regime's Peasant Corporation was dissolved after the Liberation of France in September 1944, but the unity of agricultural organizations that it had established persisted.[1] The new socialist Minister of Agriculture, François Tanguy-Prigent, replaced it with a national union of working farmers rather than landowners, the General Confederation of Agriculture (GCA). In March 1946 the CGA became the Fédération nationale des syndicats d'exploitants agricoles (FNSEA).[2] Many of the former Peasant Corporation leaders became leaders of the FNSEA.[1]
