Data Sources and More Information

Data Source and Use

Final estimates of the Scottish Cereal and Oilseed Rape Harvest are based on final yield results from the 2018 Cereal Production Survey and final crop areas from the 2018 June Census.

Final estimates are used to monitor cereal production and to meet obligations to the European Union, World Trade Organisation and Food and Agriculture Organisation.

Difference between first and final estimates

Final estimates were broadly similar to the first estimates published in October 2018.

Differences in the first and final estimates are due to the amount of information available when calculating first estimates.
