This report provides preliminary results for the year 2008 for the yield per hectare and total production of cereals, dried pulses and oilseeds. The results are presented for counties, production areas and for all of Sweden.
Cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops
Total production of cereal crops for the whole country is estimated at 5 211 300 tonnes. This is three percent more than in 2007 and four percent more than the average for the last five years.
The total production of winter wheat is estimated at 2 008 800 tonnes. This is equivalent to 39 percent of the total production of cereal crops.
Total production of peas is estimated at 29 100 tonnes, which is 23 percent less than in the previous year. The total production of field beans (Vicia faba L.) is estimated at 13 800 tonnes.
The 2008 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at 263 600 tonnes. This is 19 percent more than in 2007 and 32 percent more than the average for the last five years. The total production of oil flax is estimated at 5 200 tonnes.
Since 1998, statistics on crop yields for cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops have been based on an interview survey. Since 2005, the farmers can also use the Internet as a tool for data provision to Statistics Sweden.
The sample of the survey of 2008 consists of 4 377 survey units. The selected farms are a random sample from throughout the country. The survey was carried out in October and November. Information was requested for total farm production in tonnes of these crops and their average moisture content. Yields per hectare at farm level are calculated by dividing the total production by the crop areas of the farm. The total production is calculated from data on yield per hectare; area statistics are calculated from preliminary data on usage of arable land in 2008. These area data are based on figures from the administrative database for agricultural subsidies, IACS. Crop areas cut as green fodder have been excluded. The statistics on yields correspond with yield per hectare of sown areas minus areas cut as green fodder. Yields per hectare on harvested areas are not published. Unharvested areas and areas cut as green fodder are presented in separate tables.
The tables show the number of observations, yield per hectare in kg, total production in metric tonnes and crop areas. Standard errors are given for the yield per hectare and total production.
