Table 35: Relative standard errors

Relative standard errors (RSE) for the area treated (ha) with pesticide and for weight of active substance (kg) applied

  Area SE (%) Weight SE (%)
Winter barley(1) 6 6
Spring barley 4 5
Wheat (winter and spring)(1) 5 5
Winter oats(1) 18 27
Spring oats(1) 11 13

Field beans(1) 11 16
All Pesticides 3 3

(1) For these crops standard errors could not be calculated for all strata due to insufficient data in the sample, as these strata have not been used in the aggregate totals for the region the overall RSE values should be treated with caution

(2) Standard errors could not be calculated (NC) for dry harvest peas because there were too few active substances recorded.  Therefore estimates for these crops should be treated with caution
