This week saw the release of the latest statistics on Tenanted Agricultural Land in Scotland.
The figures show that the total area of rented agricultural land has remained broadly constant in recent years, but with a move from longer-term to seasonal lets, and a slight fall in both in 2014. The average rent in 2014/15 was £38 per hectare; £25 per hectare for LFA holdings and £125 per hectare for non-LFA farms. On average, rents increased by six per cent in 2014 (four per cent in real terms), ten per cent for LFA holdings and one per cent for non-LFA.
