In connection with the survey on crop yields in 2008 information has been collected on the areas sown in the autumn with the following crops: winter wheat, winter rye, winter barley, triticale, winter rape and winter turnip rape. A sample of almost 4 000 survey units with more than 5.0 hectare of arable land were selected. Small farms and the northern part of Sweden have been excluded due to negligible cultivation of winter crops.
Since 1968, the survey on areas sown in the autumn has been based on interviews. Since 2005, the farmers can also use Internet as a tool for data provision to Statistics Sweden.
The results are provided in the tables. The standard errors for the areas have been calculated. Estimates with standard errors exceeding 35 percent, or less than 10 observations, are not presented. Results are presented for counties, production areas and the whole country. Results from 2007 are presented for comparative purposes and national mean values for the last five years are also presented.
The areas sown in the autumn of 2008 are estimated at 519 000 hectares. Winter wheat is the most common autumn-sown crop with 337 000 hectares.
Areas of winter rape, 70 000 hectares, are 6 percent more than 2007 and nearly 43 percent more than the average for the previous five years.
Data on areas sown in the autumn that will be cultivated according to the system of organic farming have been collected since 2005. The organic farming areas sown in the autumn of 2008 are estimated at 24 000 hectares.
