Following a major review of the statistical services provided by the Department of Agriculture as part of the general review of United Kingdom Government Statistical Services carried out under Sir Derek Rayner, the Department of Agriculture for Northern Ireland has accepted recommendations that the December Agricultural Census should become a sampie enquiry and the April and August poultry enquiries be stopped. (e) Regular sampie surveys are undertaken in Great Britain on farm stocks and yields of wheat, badey and oats, and on annual egg yields per laying fowl by system of managment.
Broadly, this census covers items which the farmer can see and count on his holding -all cropping acreages and live stock, the workers engaged, and all horticultural and glasshouse items. (b) In England and Wales, an enquiry is made in December based on a stratified sampie of all statistically significant holdings in which not more than a quarter of holdings are treated. Questions are included covering the area of autumn and winter sown cereals, hay and silage production, lime usage and fertiliser stocks, livestock numbers, an extended range of labour questions (including an age analysis), agricultural machinery where the more important types of machinery are included in the returns more frequently than the less important types, and all glasshouse items.
Subsequently, there followed the Provisional Land Classification of England and Wales in one-inch map form which since 1966 has covered the whole of England and Wales. Only the physical and permanent features of the soil and its environment (climate, drainage, topography) were used as a basis for a five grade classification. Aseries of reports accompanying each sheet was also produced. A useful general adjunct to the maps is provided by Agricultural Land Classification, Technical Report No. 49].
