Total beet includes sugar beet and fodder beet. From 2007 onwards, areas under sugar beet and fodder beet will no longer be reported separately. This is due to the reform of the EU sugar regime in February 2006, which resulted in the ending of sugar production in Ireland.
Other crops includes fallow land.
