This publication contains results from the 2012 June Agricultural Census on land use, crop areas, livestock and number of people working on agricultural holdings.

This Statistical Publication provides commentary and graphics on the latest annual changes and trends over the past ten years. Accompanying this release is an annex containing the Abstract of Scottish Agricultural Statistics[1], which presents trends going back to 1982.
