This report provides final data for the year 2003 for organic and non-organic farming concerning yield per hectare and total production of cereal crops, peas, oilseed crops, table potatoes and temporary grasses. The method used for the crop products surveys for organic farming are the same as for the ordinary crop products surveys. The results are presented for counties, production areas and for all of Sweden. The production areas are shown in Map 1.
The tables show the number of observations, yield per hectare in kg, total production in metric tons, crop areas, the share of the organic crop area compared to the total crop area, the quota of the yield from organic farming and the yield from non-organic farming. Standard errors are given for yield per hectare and total production.
Cereals, peas and oilseed crops
Total production for the whole country of cereal crops from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 233 400 tons. This is fully four per cent of the total production of cereals. From this quantity about 151 600 tons are also certificated and can as a result be sold as organic products.
The total production of winter wheat from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 44 000 tons or two per cent of the total production of winter wheat. The certified production of winter wheat is 37 000 tons. Among the cereals, oats is the crop that shows the highest total production, both from the total area with subsidies for organic farming and for the certified area.
The yield per hectare is lower for the organic farming compared to the non-organic farming. The difference is greater for the flat country than for the wooded districts.
Total production of peas from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 12 700 tons, which is 16 per cent of the total production of peas.
The 2003 harvest of rape and turnip rape from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at about 2 400 tons, which is two per cent of the total production of rape and turnip rape.
Statistics on crop yields for cereals, peas and oilseed crops have been based entirely on an interview survey. The sample of the 2003 survey for organic farming consists of 1 300 farmers out of 8 143. The survey was carried out in October and November. Information was requested for total farm production in tons of the crops and their average moisture content. Yields per hectare at the farm level are calculated by dividing the production by the crop area of the farm. Unharvested crop areas are included and will lower the yield per hectare. Crop area statistics has been calculated from data on areas with subsidies for organic farming. Crop areas cut as green fodder have been excluded. Unharvested areas and areas cut as green fodder are presented in separate tables.
The total production for table potatoes from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 10 500 tons. This is almost two per cent of the total production of table potatoes.
The results are based on a mail survey with a sample of 223 out of 919 holdings with table potatoes. The areas are based on data on areas with subsidies for organic farming.
The tables show the number of observations, the total and reduced yields per hectare in kg and total production in metric tons. Standard errors are also presented. Unharvested areas are shown in a separate table. As for reduced yields, the yield per hectare is reduced for small, blighted and green potatoes for table potatoes. These reductions are made with standard values, derived from the objective potato surveys conducted until 1998. Adjustments in the reduced yields have also been made for unharvested areas, which have lowered the yield per hectare.
The total production of temporary grasses from areas with subsidies for organic farming is estimated at 965 900 tons, at 16.5 per cent moisture content. The results area based on telephone interviews. The sample size is 526 holdings.
The survey covers only temporary grasses harvested as hay, hay-silage or silage, and includes re-growth. It does not cover temporary grazings or re-growth from temporary grasses that is grazed.
