Total factor productivity of the agriculture industry in the United Kingdom is estimated to have fall en by 0.4 % between 2014 and 2015. This follows high levels of production in 2014 including record yields for cereals. Compared to 2010 productivity is up by 5.3 %.

The volume of all outputs rose by 0.3 % compared to 2014 which is the highest level ever recorded for the UK. This was driven by a slight fall (3.2 % ) in the volume of all crops offset by a 2.4% increase in the volume of livestock outputs. Total volume of meat production increased 2.4% compared to 2014. This was driven by an increase of about 3.3% for cattle and pigs and an increase of 2% for poultry. Sheep and other animals remained level.

Compared to 2014 there was a 0.7 % increase in the volume of all inputs. Animal feed is the largest input and there was a 4.1 % increase in the volume used in 2015. This was driven by similar increase for both compounds (+4.2%) and straights (+3.9%).

Since 1973 total factor productivity has increased by 68 % driven by a 3 3 % increase in the volume of outputs and an 11 % decrease in the volume of inputs.
