AHDB Spring Planting and Variety Survey 2022

The Planting Survey will provide an estimate of the area of cereals and oilseed rape intended for harvest in 2021 in Great Britain. The Variety Survey aims to assess the varietal composition of the wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape crops in Great Britain.

What is in it for me?

By publishing accurate results of the surveys, AHDB can assist in the marketing decisions made by all levy payers.

These decisions can be assisted by knowing your regional supply of cereal and oilseeds which will shape our supply for the next marketing year. By working with levy payers and stakeholders we as an industry can create greater reliance in the data that is produced.

To see how your contribution helps our industry, view the latest Planting and Variety Survey results on our website.

Please provide the area harvested in 2020* (last year) and your intended harvest area for 2021* (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
