The total 2019 planted GB area (revised estimate) is 118.95Kha. This updated estimate puts the area 1% higher than last year and represents the GB area covered by over 90% of producers.  Although the revised estimate shows a slight increase year-on-year this remains one of the lowest on record. Much of the increase seen in area has been from small growers increasing their area, a decision likely driven in part by the high priced year of 2018.
