Reason for Report Revision
This report has been reissued to correct inaccuracies in active ingredient application weight data that were overestimated in the original report.
This issue only affects certain herbicide active ingredients in relation to active ingredient quantity applied. All formulation and active substance application areas and percentage of crop treated are unaffected.
The tables containing amended data are:
Table 19 – Strawberry herbicide active substances
Table 23 – Raspberry herbicide active substances
Table 26 – Blackcurrant herbicide active substances
Table 29 – Other soft fruit herbicide active substances
Table 32 – Mode of action/chemical group of herbicide active substances
Table 34 – Principal active substance by weight
Table 36 – Total soft fruit crop, comparison with previous years
Table 48 – Relative standard errors for total soft fruit
Table 49 – Relative standard errors for protected and non-protected soft fruit
The figures containing amended data are:
Figure 6 – Use of pesticides on soft fruit crops (percentage of total quantity of active substances applied)
Figure 7 – Quantity of the major pesticide groups applied to soft fruit crops in Scotland 2011/12-2016
Figure 8 – Weight of pesticide (kg) applied per hectare of crop grown
Text relating to the data contained in these tables and figures have also been revised in the general pesticide usage and pesticide usage by crop sections.
