Before the accession to the EU, Swedish statistics on agricultural land prices and rents were not calculated or published on a regular basis. This kind of statistics has since 1973 annually been provided to Eurostat by most member states. Since the accession to the EU in 1995, Sweden is also providing Eurostat with annual statistics on agricultural land prices and rents.
In Sweden approximately 30 000 farmers rent land according to the farm structure survey 2013. The price estimations of agricultural rents are based on sample surveys with postal inquiries. About 1 800 farmers have been included in the stratified sample. The questionnaire is designed to enable estimations of the rented values of agricultural land excluding other things than land, such as buildings or entitlements.
Between the accession to the EU in 1995 and 2011, rent prices in Sweden have doubled. Since 2011, however the average price has remained around 1 600–1 700 SEK per hectare. The average price in Sweden to rent one hectare of agricultural land, including rents without payment, was 1 705 SEK in 2016. For arable land the average price was 1 798 SEK and for permanent grassland 562 SEK. The prices for land rents increased by 1 % between 2015 and 2016, but the increase is not statistically significant. The biggest increase was found in the plain district in northern Götaland and in the forest districts in central Sweden. In average, the rents for agricultural land in the southern parts of Sweden are around ten times higher than in the northern parts.
