This publication, released today by Scotland's Chief Statistician, contains provisional estimates of the 2014 cereal and oilseed rape harvest along with commentary and graphics on longer term trends. It also contains a comparison of how historic provisional estimates compare with final results from the Cereal Production Survey.
These provisional statistics, based on industry reports, provide government and stakeholders with early estimates of the size of the harvest. The government also uses these results to meet the requirements of Statistical Regulations of the European Commission. Final estimates of the 2014 cereal harvest are due to be published in December 2014.
