The survey is being conducted by English Farming & Food Partnerships (EFFP) for Defra, which aims to halt the decline in domestic production across all sectors (apart from sweet peppers) as UK producers struggle to compete effectively with imports.
EFFP is examining business collaboration, environmental sustainability and the sector's use of producer organisations.
As part of the work it is conducting a survey to find out more about the views of fruit and vegetable producers in this country.
An EFFP representative said: "This survey provides an opportunity for growers to influence the development of the sector at what is a key moment in time."
