Farm Rents 2015/16 - England

This publication shows estimates of average farm rents paid in England under full agricultural tenancies, farm business tenancies and seasonal agreements (those of less than 12 months) and the area of land covered by these agreements. The information comes from the Farm Business Survey and the June Survey of Agriculture. The data are used by tenant farmers and landlords to set rental prices, and by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to inform decisions on statutory succession.
