This statistics shows the amount of nitrogen that was used in fertilizer for tillage crops and grasses on British farms from 2011 to 2019, measured in kilograms of nitrogen per hectare of land farmed (kg/ha). Over the past thirty years, the source states that most years see nitrogen usage on tillage crops fall in the 145-150 kg/ha range. In the time period recorded here, the tillage crops for the years 2017, 2018 and 2019 fell under this range at 137 kg/ha, 142 kg/ha, and 137 kg/ha respectively.

Supplementary notes

The source also states that: "2015 saw a 1 kg/ha decrease in total nitrogen use on all crops and grassland. This is driven by a 4 kg/ha fall in the overall rates on grass. Nitrogen rates on grassland have always been lower than tillage crops. Between 1983 and 1999 they were on average 27 kg/ha lower. However since 2000, grassland rates have consistently fallen and over the last five years the average difference has been 86 kg/ha. A reduction in total cattle numbers (by 12% between 2000 and 2015) is thought to have contributed to this, probably in conjunction with some improvement in manure use efficiency."
