The Agrarian Party (Russian: Агра́рная па́ртия, Belarusian: Аграрная партыя, Agrarnaya Partya) is a left-wing agrarian political party in Belarus. It supports the government of president Alexander Lukashenko.[1]

It was created in 1992 as the United Democratic Agrarian Party of Belarus (Аб'яднанная аграрна-дэмакратычная партыя Беларусі).[2] In 1994, it changed its name into Agrarian Party. Leader of the party is Mikhail Shimansky.

At the legislative election in 1995, the party obtained 33 out of 198 seats. In 2000 and 2004 it only gained 5 and 3 seats in the House of Representatives, respectively. At the last parliamentary election in 2008, the party was reduced to one seat.
