1. Main Findings
The average rent in 2016/17 was estimated as £40 per hectare; £27 per hectare for LFA holdings and £137 per hectare for non- LFA farms.
The average rent paid per hectare increased by four per cent in 2016 (two per cent in real terms), four per cent for LFA holdings and five per cent for non- LFA.
The trend shows steady prices until 2008, since when there have been above-inflation increases in rent.
