star this property answer text <p> </p><p>There is no specific published data on the amount of wheat grown in the UK that is used for bioethanol. However it is possible to provide an estimate. Defra's statistics on ‘The Area of Crops Grown For Bioenergy in England and the UK: 2008 – 2012' published in December 2013 include data reported under the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) on the volume of bioethanol supplied to the UK road transport market with information on the feedstock and the country of origin of the feedstock. By applying appropriate conversion factors, it is possible to derive an estimate of the equivalent tonnage and crop area of wheat grown and used to produce bioethanol. These figures are outlined in the table below.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/289168/nonfood-statsnotice2012-12mar14.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/289168/nonfood-statsnotice2012-12mar14.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>UK wheat areas used to produce bioethanol supplied to the UK road transport market 2008/9 - 2012/13 </strong><strong>Wheat (RTFO Year: 15 April n-1 to 14 April n) </strong></p></td><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Volume of bioethanol (million litres)</strong><strong>(b) </strong></p></td><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Tonnage of crop implied ('000 tonnes)</strong><strong>(c) </strong></p></td><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>wheat yield (t/ha)</strong><strong>(d)(e) </strong></p></td><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Area implied (thousand ha) and % of UK total wheat area</strong><strong>(e) </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 1: 15 April 2008 - 14 April 2009</p></td><td><p>0.0</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>8.3</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 2: 15 April 2009 - 14 April 2010</p></td><td><p>0.9</p></td><td><p>3</p></td><td><p>7.9</p></td><td><p>0.3 (0%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 3: 15 April 2010 - 14 April 2011(a)</p></td><td><p>211.9</p></td><td><p>581</p></td><td><p>7.7</p></td><td><p>75.4 (4%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 4: 15 April 2011 - 14 April 2012</p></td><td><p>17.9</p></td><td><p>49</p></td><td><p>7.7</p></td><td><p>6.3 (0%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 5: 15 April 2012 - 14 April 2013 (provisional)(f)</p></td><td><p>48.2</p></td><td><p>132</p></td><td><p>6.7</p></td><td><p>19.6 (1%)</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>(a) This includes an estimated 92 million tonnes of bioethanol produced from wheat used for markets other than for UK Road Transport.</p><p> </p><p>(b) All wheat volumes above were grown on previously cropped land.</p><p> </p><p>(c) Conversion: 365 litres bioethanol = 1 tonne wheat grain (at 15% moisture).
