This section of the database contains data on agriculture, primarily the crops grown, and land use. This includes statistics derived from the Land Utilisation Surveys, but the main results of those surveys are maps, held in our historical map library. The main source for this section of the database are agricultural or farm censuses, the earliest being the 1801 Crop Returns. Note that published, printed statistics from farm censuses exist only at county-level, so any more detailed data are transcriptions from hand-written sources, and generally cover only part of the country.
