AHDB Planting and Variety Survey 2022

The Planting Survey aims to provide an estimate of the area of cereals and oilseed rape intended for harvest in 2022 in the UK. The Variety Survey aims to assess the varietal composition of the wheat, barley, oats, and oilseed rape crops in the UK.

What is in it for me?

Knowing more about our domestic market, such as the regional supply of cereal and oilseed rape crops, can help marketing decisions. By working together, we can produce accurate and reliable data to quantify domestic production, at a time when food security is more important than ever.

Planting Survey

Please provide the area harvested in 2021* (last year) and your intended harvest area for 2022* (this year) in the relevant boxes below.

Winter and spring wheat definitions should be based on variety, as described on the AHDB’s Recommended List. Where this is not possible, it should be based on time of planting

Please only include land under your management.

* Please report the crop area rather than the field area, where possible excluding field margins / conservation headlands / buffer zones.

** Grassland of less than 5 years old, as declared in your Basic Payment claim form and coded as TG01.
