Agricultural land prices 2015
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 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 2014 and 2015 the price of arable land has increased on average by 8 %. The price of agricultural land is almost six times higher 2015 compared with 1995 and the average price was estimated to 72 500 SEK per hectare. During 2015 the average price has increased in almost all regions. The average price has increased most in the southern plain districts and the central districts of Götaland, 31 and 18 % respectively between 2014 and 2015. The average price has decreased in the northern plain districts and in the forest districts of Götaland.
The price per hectare of arable land was still highest in the south with an average price of 202 700 SEK per hectare.
Pasture and meadow land
The average price of pasture and meadow land in Sweden was 27 100 SEK per hectare in 2015 which is 6 % higher than it was in 2014. The average prices have increased in almost all regions. Between 2014 and 2015, the average price has increased most in the central districts of Götaland and forest districts of central Sweden, 21 % and 9 % respectively.
The price per hectare pasture and meadow land was still highest in the south with an average price of 86 800 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 13 times higher than the prices in the north of Sweden for arable land and around 20 times higher for pasture and meadow land.
