In connection with the survey on crop yields in 2016, information has been collected on the areas sown in the autumn with the following crops: winter wheat, winter rye, winter barley, winter triticale, winter rape and winter turnip rape. A sample of around 4 000 survey units with more than 5.0 hectare of arable land were selected. Small farms and the northern part of Sweden have been excluded due to negligible cultivation of winter crops.
Since 1968, the survey on areas sown in the autumn has been based on interviews. Since 2005, the farmers can also use Internet as a tool for data provision to Statistics Sweden.
The results are provided in the tables. The standard errors for the areas have been calculated. Estimates with standard errors exceeding 35%, or less than 10 observations, are not presented. Results are presented for counties, production areas and the whole country. Results from 2015 are presented for comparative purposes and national mean values for the last five years are also presented.
The areas sown in the autumn of 2016 are estimated at 584 600 hectares. The areas of autumn sown cereals are estimated at 478 000 hectares and areas of autumn sown oilseed crops are estimated at 106 600 hectares. Winter wheat is the most common autumn sown crop with 410 500 hectares.
Data on areas sown in the autumn that will be cultivated according to the system of organic farming, has been collected since 2005. The organic farming areas sown in the autumn of 2016 are estimated at about 38 000 hectares.
