The total 2019 planted GB area (revised estimate) is 120.25Kha. This updated estimate puts the area 1.8% higher than last year and represents the GB area covered by over 97% of producers. 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.
