Local MSP Urges Farmers to Complete Agriculture Census

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson is urging farmers to complete the 2020 Agricultural Census before the extended deadline of Friday 31 July.

Farmers can access and complete the form online or request to be contacted by a member of the census team by telephone. Over the coming weeks, some farmers may also be contacted directly to discuss providing data.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“This year the survey is voluntary to help ease pressures on farmers during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“However, the importance of having access to first-hand information from farmers about their business and the agriculture sector in general is vital to help shape government policy and I would encourage all farmers to take part.”

Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing said:

“It is now more important than ever that we have an accurate picture of developments in the agricultural sector so that we can assess the impact of coronavirus and develop the right policies to support our farming communities.

“The Agricultural Census data underpins research work in the agricultural sector and is widely used by industry bodies as evidence of how the industry is performing.

“This year the census is voluntary but I urge every farmer in Scotland to take the time to complete the survey either online or on the telephone.”
