This report provides final data for the year 2008 for organic and non-organic farming concerning yield per hectare and total production of cereals, 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 225 800 tonnes. This is slightly more than four per cent of the total production of cereals.
The total production of oats from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 71 900 tonnes or about nine 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 4 800 tonnes, which is about 16 per cent of the total production of peas.
The 2008 harvest of rape and turnip rape from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at about 3 800 tonnes, which is one and a half 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 2008 survey for organic farming consists of 1 878 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 14 300 tons. This is almost three per cent of the total production of table potatoes. The organic potato yield per hectare is 55 per cent of the yield compared with non-organic farms.
The results are based on a 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 890 900 tons, at 16.5 per cent moisture content. This is 22 per cent of the total production. The yield per hectare is about 84 per cent for the organic farming compared to the non-organic farming. The results are based on a survey with a sample size of 526 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.
