Pesticide Usage Survey Reports

These reports (see below) cover the period from 1996 onwards. Please contact us at psu@sasa.gsi.gov.uk if you require data from earlier surveys.

All reports from 2011 onwards are also available on the Scottish Government website in both PDF and HTML formats.

Please note protected edible crop reports will no longer be published for Scotland.  These reports were the smallest in the series published by Pesticide Survey Unit.   The 2015 report was a short summary report as the area of protected edible crops recorded in the June Agricultural Census has declined for a number of years to only 11 hectares.  Such a small area no-longer justifies a separate report, however SASA will continue to collect the data biennially for inclusion in the UK report and for advice provision.

For upcoming publication dates please see our official statistics page.

We welcome feedback on our reports and would be grateful if you could spare a few moments to complete our online Pesticide Usage Feedback Survey.
