Scottish Survey of Agricultural Production Methods

Results from the Scottish Survey of Agricultural Production Methods 2010 have been published. The survey covered farm practices relating to tillage and soil cover, manure and slurry usage, irrigation, and livestock housing and grazing intensity.

Among the findings were:

  • 10% of holdings had newly established tree lines during the preceding three years, with hedges established in 8% of holdings.
  •  37% of holdings with cultivable land applied manure or slurry on their holdings, though only a small proportion of these ploughed it in immediately
  • 57% of cattle were housed in straw yard with a solid manure system and half of pigs were also housed in straw yards
