Please note:

  • At present the EDINA agcensus service provides access to data for the three UK territories from 1969 to the most recent Census year.
  • Since 1999 English and Welsh Agricultural Census data have been supplied separately by the respective government bodies.
  • Since the mid 1970's the units used in the Agricultural Census are metric i.e. hectares, tonnes, square metres. The units used prior to 1976 were originally imperial i.e. acres, tons, square feet, however this earlier data has been converted to metric units for the sake of consistency. The original units of measurement are detailed on each year's questionnaires and users who particularly require data in the original units should contact the Data Library.
  • In some cases the only copy of questionnaire available for scanning has been marked up in pen or are partially illegible.
  • Depending on web browser used you may or may not be prompted to open PDF file or save PDF to local PC.
