This report provides forecasts concerning the yields per hectare and total production of cereals and oilseed crops for the year 2010. The results are presented in a state level.
According to the forecast the yields per hectare of cereals are expected to be in level with the average yields per hectare during the five last years. Compared to 2009 however the yields are estimated to be lower for most of the crops. Mixed grain, Winter rye and Spring barley are the crops for which the yields are estimated to decrease the most compared to 2009.
For oilseed crops the yields per hectare are in general estimated to decrease compared to 2009. Only the yields of Spring turnip rape are expected to increase slighlty compared to the previous year. Compared to the average yield per hectare for the last five years the yields of Spring rape are the only crop estimated to be lower.
The forecast shows that the total production of cereals is estimated to be 4.8 million tons for 2010, which is about 8 % lower than 2009 and 3 % lower than the average for the years 2005-2009. A combination of an unusually cold and long winter and a decrease in cultivated areas for cereals seems to be the reasons behind the total lower production for 2010.
The area of oilseed crops in Sweden is steadily increasing. Last year there was the highest total production for oilseed crops in over 15 years. This increase in area seems to count for the high production of oilseeds for 2010 which is estimated to be in about the same level as last year (+ 2 %) which is 27 % higher then the average for the last five years.
