This report provides preliminary results for the year 2014 on the yield per hectare and total production of cereal crops, dried pulses and oilseed crops. The results are presented for all of Sweden.
Cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops
The total harvest of cereal crops for the whole country is estimated at nearly 5.7 million tonnes. This is 14 % more than in 2013 and 17 % more than the average for the previous five years.
The total production of winter wheat is estimated at about 2.7 million tonnes and the total production of spring barley is estimated at almost 1.5 million tonnes.
The total production of peas is estimated at 48 000 tonnes, which is 18 % more than the previous year. The total production of field beans is estimated at 55 200 tonnes, which is 10 % less than in 2013.
The 2014 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at 321 700 tonnes. This is almost at the same level as the previous year.
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 delivery to Statistics Sweden.
The sample of the survey for 2014 consists of 4 392 survey units. The selected farms are a random sample from all over the country. These preliminary results are based on a sub sample of 1 098 survey units. These units receive priority in the survey and in the subsequent data processing at Statistics Sweden. 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 the farm level are calculated by dividing the total production by the crop areas of the farm. The total production was calculated from data on yield per hectare and area statistics that were calculated from preliminary data on usage of agricultural land in 2014. These area data are based on figures from the administrative database for agricultural subsidies. Crop areas for plants harvested green have been excluded.
The tables show the number of observations, yield per hectare in kg, total production in metric tonnes and crop areas in hectares. Standard errors are given for the yield per hectare and total production.
