The Fermanagh and Omagh local authority region is the area across the UK most dominated by the Agriculture industry, new research has revealed.

The study by marketing training hub School of Marketing analysed ONS data to see the number of businesses from each industry in every local authority to find the areas dominated the most by a single sector.

It found that Fermanagh and Omagh is most dominated by agricultural, forestry and fishing businesses, with 40.3 per cent of all businesses in the area being from this industry – the highest in the list.

Overall, the agriculture, forestry, and fishing industry were the most common industry for businesses, with seven entries in the top ten and 22 in the top 50.

Commenting on the findings, Ritchie Mehta, Chief Executive of the School of Marketing, said: “This data shows that some industries really dominate in certain areas of the UK; however, that doesn’t mean there’s only one type of job available, as there can be a huge variety of roles within a business sector.”
