The Latvian Farmers' Union (Latvijas Zemnieku savienība) is an centrist agrarian political party in Latvia. Founded in 1917 it was the most influential right-wing political party between the two World Wars, during the period of Latvian independence from the Russian SFSR in 1918 until its annexation by the Soviet Union in 1940, after which the party was banned. The party reformed and resumed operations in 1990 when Latvia begun its second period of independence. Since 2002 it has been part of the Union of Greens and Farmers (Zaļo un Zemnieku savienība) coalition, along with the Latvian Green Party, that won 9.5 % of the popular vote and 12 out of 100 seats in the 2002 elections, and 18 seats in the 2006 elections.
