The Board of Agriculture was formed in 1911 for the promotion of interests of agriculture, forestry and other rural industries. Agriculture Statistics in Scotland 1912 was published in 1913 and included livestock numbers and agricultural land use , crop area production and yield statistics. Subsequent editions of Agriculture Statistics in Scotland included prices and labour statistics. Agriculture Statistics in Scotland was published until 1978 and replaced by the Economic Report on Scottish Agriculture in 1980 which is still published today.

Please note that some of these publications are very large and may take some time to download.
