Agricultural land prices 2018
Before the accession to the EU, Swedish statistics on agricultural land prices and rents were not calculated or published on a regular basis. In the EU, this kind of statistics have 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. It should be noted, however, that few of the sales made each year in Sweden are of agricultural land exclusively. 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 2017 and 2018 the price of arable land in Sweden has increased on average by 8 %. The price of agricultural land is 87 % higher in 2018 compared with 2008 and the average price was estimated to 90 700 SEK per hectare. The price per hectare of arable land is still highest in the plain districts in southern Götaland with an average price of 216 200 SEK per hectare. There are big variations in prices between different parts of Sweden. In the plain districts of southern Götaland, prices for arable land were on average 13 times higher than the prices in the upper parts of Norrland.
Compared with 2017 the average price has increased in five out of eight regions in 2018. The average price has increased the most in the Forest districts in central Sweden. It increased with 16 % to 50 700 SEK per hectare.

The price per hectare pasture and meadow land was still highest in the plain districts in southern Götaland with an average price of 106 800 SEK per hectare. The upper parts of Norrland have had the lowest average price per hectare each year since 1995. In 2018 the price was 6 200 SEK per hectare.
