The source notes: "Results are weighted to represent the whole population of farm businesses that have at least 25,000 Euros of standard output as recorded in the annual June Survey of Agriculture and Horticulture. In 2018/19, this accounted for approximately 57,100 farm businesses."

Furthermore: "From 2018/19, the classification of farms is based on 2013 standard output coefficients. 2017/18 results have been recalculated and presented in this release to allow comparability between 2017/18 and 2018/19."

Additionally:"

Nitrate Vulnerable Zones
The European Commission (EC) nitrates directive requires areas of land that drain into waters polluted by nitrates to be designated as Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZs). Farmers with land in NVZs must follow rules to tackle nitrate loss from agriculture. The regulations that apply in England and Wales were reviewed and updated in 2017, including NVZ boundaries."
