Supplementary notes

* Numbers for 2019, for prior years the number of respondents are as follows:

2017/18 - 1766
2018/19 - 1768

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 the source notes: "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 the source notes:"

Farm Economic performance
Economic performance for each farm is measured as the ratio between economic output (mainly sales revenue) and inputs (costs). The inputs for this calculation include an adjustment for unpaid manual labour. The higher the ratio, the higher the economic efficiency and performance. The farms are then ranked and allocated to performance bands based on economic performance percentiles:

Low performance band - farms who took part in the fertiliser survey and were in the bottom 25% of economic performers
Medium performance band - farms who took part in the fertiliser survey and were in the middle 50% of performers
High performance band - farms who took part in the fertiliser survey and were in the top 25% of performers"
