Structure of the agricultural industry

Statistics about the structure of the agricultural industry.

This series includes a range of publications about the structure of the farming industry in England and the UK. The statistics include information on agricultural land use, crop areas, yields and production, livestock populations, the agricultural workforce and diversification activity on farms.

These publications summarise information from the June survey of agriculture and horticulture, administrative systems used in agriculture (eg information from the cattle tracing system and the annual sheep and goat inventory) and other farming surveys run by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Department for Agriculture and Rural Development for Northern Ireland.
