Agricultural land prices 2016
Before the accession to the EU, Swedish statistics on agricultural land prices and rents were not calculated or published on a regular basis. In the EU this kind of statistics have been provided by most Member States to Eurostat each year since 1973. Since the accession to the EU in 1995, Sweden is providing Eurostat with annual statistics on agricultural land prices and rents.
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 register of assessed values for real estates. However, it should 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 into account these circumstances 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 2015 and 2016 the price of arable land for Sweden has increased on average by 3 %. The price of agricultural land is 91 % higher in 2016 compared with 2006 and the average price was estimated to 75 000 SEK per hectare. The price per hectare of arable land is still highest in plain districts in southern Götaland with an average price of 182 100 SEK per hectare. There are big variations in prices between different parts of Sweden. In the plain districts of southern Götaland prices were on average more than twelve times higher than the prices in Upper parts of Norrland for arable land.
Compared with 2015 the average price has increased in almost all regions in 2016. The average price has increased most in plain districts in northern Götaland and forest districts in central Sweden. It increased with 24 % to 87 200 SEK per hectare respectively 10 % to 40 200 SEK per hectare.
Pasture and meadow land
The average price of pasture and meadow land in Sweden was 28 000 SEK per hectare in 2016 which is 3 % higher than it was in 2015. The price per hectare pasture and meadow land was still highest in plain districts in southern Götaland with an average price of 82 000 SEK per hectare. Upper parts of Norrland have had the lowest average price per hectare since 1995. In 2016 the price was 4 500 SEK per hectare.
The average prices have increased in almost all regions. Between 2015 and 2016, the average price has increased most in plain districts in northern Götaland. It increased with 33 % which corresponds to 9 800 SEK.
