The Federación Agraria Argentina (Argentine Agrarian Federation) is a trade union for small and medium farmers.

It was founded on August 10, 1912, as a consequence of a farmers big rebellion and strike made that year known as the 'Grito de Alcorta' (The Cry of Alcorta) because its center was the town of Alcorta in the Province of Santa Fe.

In this 1912 movement, most of the farmers were immigrant land leaseholders (in Spanish Arrendatarios). The strike started because the land rents were very high. As a result of this strike the rents lowered by 1913.

There is a different flag also used by the Argentine Agrarian Federation: it is a white flag with the logo or seal of the group. The seal has the traditional flag with the name of the group. Therefore this variant of the flag can be defined as a flag with another flag represented inside.

This flag variant was seen several times in March and April 2008 during the strike of the Agriculture producers.
