Statistics on agricultural land prices and rents has not been calculated or published on a regular basis in Sweden before the accession to EU. In EU this kind of statistics is been provided to Eurostat by most of the member states each year since 1973. Since the accession to EU in 1995, Sweden also is providing Eurostat with annual statistics on agricultural land prices and rents.
The estimations of agricultural rents are based on sample surveys with postal inquiries. About 1 800 farmers have been included in the stratified sample. The questionnaires are worked out in a way that makes it possible to estimate the rented values of only the arable land, which means that rented values of living houses or other buildings are not included in the estimates of agricultural rents delivered to Eurostat. Therefore the figures delivered to Eurostat are not the same as those presented in this report.
A short summary tells us that the rent prices in Sweden has increased by on average 15 % from year 2010 to year 2011. Between 2011 and 2012 the increase was about 2 % on average. The high increase between 2010 and 2011 in the southern areas, suitable for cereal production, might be in part a result of higher prices for cereals. We saw the same level of increase between the year 2006 and 2007 when there also was a high increase in prices for cereals. The average price to rent one hectare agricultural land including rents without payment in Sweden was 1 637 SEK in the year 2012. The rents for agricultural land in the northern part of Sweden include a bigger share of rents without payments and therefore the price in some southern parts of Sweden is more than ten times larger than in the northern parts.
