These are experimental statistics on the areas of non-food crops grown in the UK. This includes the areas of oilseed rape, sugar beet, wheat, miscanthus, short rotation coppice and straw crops grown in the UK for use as bioenergy.
It is important to note that these are experimental statistics. They should be viewed and used with caution as the reliability and quality has not been fully determined and the methodologies for producing them are still evolving. They have not yet been shown to meet the quality criteria for National Statistics branding, but are being published to involve users in their development and to help build in quality at an early stage. A fuller description of the limitations of these statistics is provided in each section of the release.
