Data sources and more information
Estimates of average farm business income in Scotland come from the Scottish Farm Business Survey. This is an annual survey of around 400 in the supported sectors and only includes farms with economic activity of at least £20,000. Part-time farms are not included. Farms that do not receive support, such as pigs, poultry and horticulture, are not included in the survey.
Income estimates are for the accounting year 2020-21, which relates to the 2020 crop year.
Similar surveys take place in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Full results for the United Kingdom are available online. https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/agriculture-in-the-united-kingdom
