Statistical release revised on the 10th June 2015. Labelling in tables 15, 16, 20 and 21 updated from “Yorks & Humberside” to “Yorkshire & The Humber”. There are no changes to the statistics in the tables.

These statistics give the areas of non-food crops grown in the UK. This includes the areas of oilseed rape, sugar beet, wheat, maize, miscanthus, short rotation coppice and straw crops grown in the UK for use as bioenergy. They are derived from a range of sources and are a secondary analysis of data that have already been published. Although much of the source data are published as National Statistics, there are limitations to these statistics and these are described within each section.
