Boyup Brook farmer Milton Moore said agriculture had been ignored so far in the election campaign but if the politicians are to take the industry seriously, there has to be one unified voice.
"We've got two farmer bodies, WAFarmers and the PGA," Mr Moore said.
"We've been our own worst enemy - we have got very ineffective voices while we remain divided.
"We need to be far more effective in what we deliver because while we are not effective, the politicians will just keep ignoring us."
Mr Moore said the biggest issue facing farmers was the increase in interest rates.
"Most farmers have come through two or three very ordinary years and in those same years our cost of production has gone through the roof," he said.
"All we're doing now is paying in the form of increased interest rates."
He said there hasn't been one policy directly related to agriculture that will make any difference to the industry.
"I think both sides have paid us a compliment in that they recognise we are hard workers, but that doesn't help pay the bills," Mr Moore said.
