: Information not available

(1) Figures for tractors and transport are based on estimates for all main holdings only, the numbers of which change from year to year.

(2) From 2015, only summary transport data was collected (as opposed to data for individual sub-categories). Comparisons with previous years should be made with caution.

See section 9 of the publication for more information.
