Final Results of the June 2017 Agricultural Census together with June results for the years 2007 to 2016 for comparison

From 2009, data on land use has been obtained from the Single Application Form ( SAF) for holdings claiming Basic Payment Scheme entitlements (previously Single Farm Payments). This has been combined with land use data from all other holdings, collected through June Census forms, to generate overall results.

This change in the underlying data source constitutes a step change in the data series, which is more evident for certain land use categories.
