This report provides preliminary results for the year 2006 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 4 182 400 tonnes. This is 17 percent less than 2005 and 21 percent less than the average for the previous five years.
Total production of peas is estimated at 51 100 tonnes, which is 22 percent less than the previous year. The total production of field beans (Vicia faba L.) is estimated at 13 100 tonnes.
The 2006 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at 223 100 tonnes. This is 13 percent more than 2005 and 36 percent more than the average for the previous five years. The total production of oil flax is estimated at 12 100 tons.
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 Internet as a tool for data provision to Statistics Sweden.
The sample of the survey of 2006 consists of 4 360 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 2006. 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 calculated. 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 tons and crop areas. Standard errors are given for the yield per hectare and total production.
