Ecological Focus Areas: features on farms in England 2015/16

This release provides a baseline assessment of Ecological Focus Area (EFA) features on farms with arable land in England prior to the implementation of the new CAP Greening requirements in 2015. It also provides estimates of the number of these farms that might have needed to implement changes in order to meet the requirements. The information was collected from a subset of farms within the 2014/15 Farm Business Survey which covered the 2014 harvest.
