Unannounced inspections, redundant questions from NMA staff, according to farmers, and the need for transparency in the institution. These are just a few examples of the š farmers' relations with the NMA.

Even leaders of farmers' organisations are afraid to raise issues with the NMA and what might be a hidden demand from the farmers.
