Share of farm holdings using different devices in England in 2019, by farm size

During a survey among farming holdings in England in October of 2019, it was found that approximately ten percent of responding small holdings (farms with a Standard Labor Requirement of less than two) did not use any computers, smartphones or tablets. The use of desktop and laptop computers was most widespread among large responding holdings with 95 percent of such holdings stating that they use these kinds of devices.
A trend can be seen that the larger holdings were the more likely they were to use any type of electronic devices, this was also true for all specific types of devices.
