Scottish agriculture is under significant external pressure, both from the policy and trade landscape after the UK withdraws from the EU and the current COVID-19 outbreak. This puts strain on the resilience of the agricultural industry to withstand these shocks.

The purpose of this  report, commissioned by the Scottish Government produced by SRUC economists and SAC consultants, is two-fold:

i) to understand the current efficiency of Scottish agricultural sectors, and
ii) to outline key interventions that could be used to support productivity growth in Scottish agriculture.
