Statistics on agricultural land prices and rents have not on a regular basis been calculated or published in Sweden before the accession to the EU. In EU this kind of statistics have been provided by most of the Member States to Eurostat each year since 1973. Since the accession to EU in 1995, also Sweden is providing Eurostat with annual statistics on agricultural land prices and rents.

The estimations of agricultural land prices are based on information, collected by Statistics Sweden, from sales of whole or parts of agricultural estates and information from the taxation register for real estates. However, it must be mentioned that in Sweden rather few sales of exclusively agricultural land are performed each year. Most sales of whole or parts of agricultural estates also include buildings and other kinds of land. The method used takes account of this circumstance in order to eliminate the value of buildings and other kinds of land by using the assessed values to determine the proportion of the agricultural land value of the total selling price.

Between 2012 and 2013 the price on agricultural land has decreased on average with 2 % for the second year in a row. The price on agricultural land was al­most five times higher 2013 compared to 1995 and the average price was esti­mated to 48,400 SEK per hectare. During 2013 the average price has increased in some regions and decreased in others. The average price has increased in most of the southern parts of Sweden and the central districts in Götaland while the average price has decreased in most of the middle and eastern parts of Swe­den. Up north the prices have almost stood still during 2013. The price per hec­tare agricultural land was still highest in the south with an average price of 154,200 SEK per hectare. There are big differences in prices between different parts of Sweden. In the plain district of southern Sweden the prices were on average more than 12 times higher than the prices in the north of Sweden.

One hectare arable land had an average price of 58,800 SEK in 2013 in Sweden and one hectare grazing land cost 20,600 SEK.
