Agriculture in Aberdeenshire - Looking to the Future
This report was commissioned by NESAAG (the North East of Scotland Agriculture Advisory Group), Aberdeenshire Council and Scottish Enterprise. Aberdeenshire Council has periodically commissioned reviews of the position of agriculture in the area, the last being for the period to 2003. The current work updates this series for the period 2003 to 2007. However, in addition to the usual statistical review of agriculture this study presents a strategic review of the position of the industry, looks more widely at links into the rural economy and the food and drink sector, tries to look at future prospects and challenges, and presents recommendations for action.
