(1) Figures for tractors and transport are based on estimates for all main holdings only, the numbers of which change from year to year.

(2) From 2015, only summary machinery data was collected (as opposed to data for individual sub-categories). Comparisons with previous years should be made with caution. In some cases this also affects 2014 data.

More information can be found in the publication 'Results from the 2015 December Agricultural Survey' www.gov.scot/stats/bulletins/01205
