This publication gives provisional estimate of the quantity of cereal and oilseed rape production in the UK from the 2015 harvest.
There has been a delay in the publication of these statistics, which were originally intended to be released on 15 October 2015.
As part of our quality assurance process, it was found that a small number of invalid records had been included in calculating the wheat and barley production figures that were published on the 8 October. It was not possible to rectify this and produce revisions in time for publication on the 15 October. These revised statistics replace the wheat and barley production statistics published on the 8 October 2015.
Internal validation processes have been changed to prevent this happening in future. Production estimates from earlier years have been checked and are not affected.
