Take part in our harvest 2021 survey


Help us help you. As harvest 2021 progresses, NFU Scotland are very keen to hear how you are all getting on across the country. The better you inform us, the better placed we are to hold discussions with the grain trade and government on your behalf. And one lucky respondent selected at random will win a bottle of whisky in a prize draw.


Willie Thomson, NFU Scotland’s Combinable Crops Committee chair emphasised the survey’s importance. “We need to know what is going on across Scotland, otherwise we rely on data from the major cereal growing areas of the UK, which doesn’t always best represent our members’ businesses.” David Michie, NFU Scotland’s Crops Policy Manager adds “this information helps us identify regional issues that could bubble up further down the line. The hot dry summer in the west has forced some farm businesses to start feeding this year’s silage, which could make grain availability very regionally important this winter. The information provided by the survey will be incredibly valuable to our regional and wider policy team”.


The figures you provide are analysed by NFU Scotland. They keep NFU Scotland well informed and better able to talk to the grain trade and to government. They are also used to add weight to NFU and AHDB’s harvest forecasts, and shared with Scottish and UK Governments to provide the most accurate harvest forecasts.

The survey will close on Sunday 26th September. All responses will be treated in strictest confidence. Only one entry per member is allowed.

Before you begin

Please read the below guidance carefully before completing the questionnaire.

  1. Please do not fill in your survey unless your harvest is complete.
  2. If your harvest is not complete by the survey deadline, please give the average yield realised on the area harvested to date.
  3. Yield estimates should be based on dried samples. If this is not possible, please adjust to give your best estimate of yield on a 14.5% (approximate) moisture content basis for cereals, 9% for oilseeds and 16% for proteins.
  4. Areas planted – record the same areas as you entered on your June Census return.
  5. All figures must be in metric units, (tonnes and hectares).
  6. To convert to hectares, multiply the area in acres by 0.405.
