Agriculture Land Prices

Information about agricultural land prices in the United Kingdom is important as agricultural land takes up over two thirds of the total land area at 17.2 million hectares or 71% and due to intensive farming techniques still provides around 60% of the country’s total food needs.

Agricultural output held up well during the recession in 2008 and has now increased to £25.7bn by 2013. Total income from farming for the United Kingdom is estimated to have decreased between 2013 and 2014 by 4.4% but is still £5.4bn, in real terms. In 2014 agriculture in the UK employed 476 000 people. For further statistics and information
