The survey data has many uses, from assisting with animal disease control processes to providing information which is used for management of the EU cereals markets. It is also used heavily by environmental policy makers who assess the impact of CAP reform on the agricultural industry and the landscape. As it is such a large survey, the data can be used to provide low level statistics i.e. at county level, which makes it a powerful tool for researchers and anyone interested in local features.
All national statistics published by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs are produced according to the UK Statistics Authority guidelines.
