This report provides final data for the year 2007 for organic and non-organic farming concerning yield per hectare and total production of cereal crops, dried pulses, oilseed crops, table potatoes and temporary grasses. The methods used for the crop products surveys for organic farming are the same as for the ordinary crop products surveys. The results are presented for counties, production areas and for all of Sweden. The production areas are shown in Map 1.
The tables show the number of observations, yield per hectare in kg, total production in metric tons, crop areas, the share of the organic crop area compared to the total crop area, the quota of the yield from organic farming and the yield from non-organic farming. Standard errors are given for yield per hectare and total production.
Cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops
Total production for the whole country of cereal crops from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 219 900 tonnes. This is fully four per cent of the total production of cereals.
The total production of oats from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 73 100 tonnes or about eight per cent of the total production of oats. Among the cereals, oats is the crop that shows the highest total production from the area with subsidies for organic farming.
Total production of peas from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 5 100 tonnes, which is about 13 per cent of the total production of peas.
The 2007 harvest of rape and turnip rape from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at about 4 200 tonnes, which is slightly less than two per cent of the total production of rape and turnip rape.
Statistics on crop yields for cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops have been based on an interview survey. The farmers can also use Internet as a tool for data delivery to Statistics Sweden.
The sample of the 2007 survey for organic farming consists of 1 869 farmers out of about 6 100. The survey was carried out in October and November. Information was requested for total farm production in tonnes of the crops and their average moisture content. Yields per hectare at the farm level are calculated by dividing the production by the crop area of the farm. Unharvested crop areas are included and will lower the yield per hectare. Crop area statistics has been calculated from data on areas with subsidies for organic farming. Crop areas cut as green fodder have been excluded. Unharvested areas and areas cut as green fodder are presented in separate tables.
The total production for table potatoes from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 10 500 tons. This is almost two per cent of the total production of table potatoes. The organic potato yield per hectare is half (50 per cent) the yield compared to non-organic farms.
The results are based on a mail survey with a sample of 186 holdings with table potatoes registered for organic farming subsidies.
The tables show the number of observations, the reduced yields per hectare in kg and total production in metric tons. Standard errors are also presented. Unharvested areas are shown in a separate table. As for reduced yields, the yield per hectare is reduced for small, blighted and green potatoes. These reductions are made with standard values. Adjustments in the reduced yields have also been made for unharvested areas, which have lowered the yield per hectare.
The total production of temporary grasses from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 836 400 tons, at 16.5 per cent moisture content. This is 20 per cent of the total production. The yield per hectare is about 70 per cent for the organic farming compared to the non-organic farming. Since last year changes in the reporting of areas has been introduced that have lowered the areas reported as organic temporary grasses 2007 compared to previous years.
The results are based on a mail survey. The sample size is 527 holdings.
The survey covers only temporary grasses harvested as hay, hay-silage or silage, and includes regrowth. It does not cover temporary grazings or regrowth from temporary grasses that is grazed.
