Data Sources and More Information

Data Source

First estimates of the Cereal and Oilseed Rape Harvest are made at the annual Crop Report Meeting. A panel of experts from the Scottish cereal industry provide their estimates of the harvest yields and these are applied to final figures for areas sown.

Area data is derived from the 2019 June Agricultural Census.

It is important to note that the collection of yield estimates prior to the completion of the harvest may lead to a level of inaccuracy with these first estimates.

Final estimates of the 2019 cereal harvest will be available in December. These are based on data gathered from a sample of farms across Scotland.
