Before the accession to the EU, Swedish statistics on agricultural land prices and rents were not calculated or published on a regular basis. In EU this kind of statistics has been provided by most Member States to Eurostat each year since 1973. Since the accession to the EU in 1995, Sweden too is providing Eurostat with annual statistics on agricultural land prices and rents.
Estimations of agricultural land prices are based on information, collected by Statistics Sweden, from sales of whole or parts of agricultural estates and information from the register of assessed values for real estates. However, it should be mentioned that in Sweden rather few sales of exclusively agricultural land are performed each year. Most sales of whole or parts of agricultural estates also include buildings and other kinds of land. The method used takes into account these circumstances in order to eliminate the value of buildings and other kinds of land by using the assessed values to determine the proportion of the agricultural land value of the total selling price.
Between 2011 and 2014 the price of arable land has increased on average by 10 %. The price of agricultural land is over five times higher 2014 compared with 1995 and the average price was estimated to 67,400 SEK per hectare. During 2014 the average price has increased in all regions besides one. The average price has increased most in the northern plain districts and the forest districts in Götaland (14–16 %) from 2011 to 2014. The average price has decreased in the plain districts in Svealand (- 4 %).
The price per hectare of arable land was still highest in the south with an average price of 154,400 SEK per hectare.
The average price of permanent grassland in Sweden was 25,600 SEK per hectare in 2014 which is 20 % higher than it was in 2011. The average prices have increased in all regions over this period. Between 2011 and 2014, the average price has increased most in the northern plain and southern districts in Götaland, 47 % and 28 % respectively.
The price per hectare permanent grassland was still highest in the south with an average price of 79,400 SEK per hectare.
There are big variations in prices between different parts of Sweden. In the plain districts of southern Götaland prices were on average more than 10 times higher than the prices in the north of Sweden both for arable land and permanent grassland.
