Data Sources and More Information

Data Sources

Final estimates of the Scottish Cereal and Oilseed Rape Harvest are used to monitor cereal production and to meet obligations to the European Union, World Trade Organisation and Food and Agriculture Organisation.

In April 2020, it was announced in the RESAS Revised schedule of agricultural surveys and outputs that the Cereal Production Survey would be temporarily stopped. The final 2020 estimate is based on a similar method to the first estimate, using industry intelligence and  information about historic trends. Area data is derived from the 2020 June Agricultural Census.
