For England, Wales, and Scotland the area under wheat is given as 2,000,981 acres against 2.102,206 acres last year, while the yield is put at 65,529,325 bushels compared with 73,028.856 bushels, being a yield per acre of 32'75 bushels, Against 34 74 bushels for 1808 and 29 86 for the years 1889-98.

For this cereal the decimal average is 33'26 bushels. Oats also show an increased acreage and a diminished out-turn. The land under oats was 2,959,755 acres, compared with 2,017,760 acres, while the yield is 114,746,544 bushels, against 118.920,917.
