This report provides final data for 2018 on yield per hectare and total production of cereal crops, dried pulses, oilseed crops, annual plants harvested green, potatoes and temporary grasses. The results are presented for counties, production areas and for all of Sweden.
The tables show the number of observations, yield per hectare in kilogram (kg), crop areas and total production in metric tonnes. Standard errors are given for yield per hectare, total production, unharvested areas and areas harvested as green fodder.
Cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops
The total production of cereal crops for the whole country is estimated at 3 260 100 tonnes. This is 45% less than in 2017 and 43% less than the average for the last five years.
The total production of winter wheat is estimated at 1 399 900 tonnes which is a decrease of 44% compared with the average of the last five years.
The total production of peas is estimated at 48 900 tonnes, which is 41% less than the previous year. The total production of field beans (Vicia faba L.) is estimated at 34 800 tonnes.
The 2018 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at 217 700 tonnes. This is 42% less than in 2017 and 35% less than the average for the last five years. The total production of oil flax is estimated at 4 000 tonnes.
Since 1998, statistics on crop yields for cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops have been based on an interview survey. Beginning in 2005, the farmers can also use the Internet as a tool for data delivery to Statistics Sweden.
The sample of the 2018 survey consists of 4 418 holdings. The survey was carried out in October and November. Information was requested for total farm production in tonnes of these 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 have been calculated from final statistics on usage of arable land. The figures on areas are based on data from the Swedish administrative database for agricultural subsidies, IACS. Crop areas cut as green fodder have been excluded when it comes to areas for the production of grain. Unharvested areas and areas cut as green fodder are presented in separate tables.
The results are presented for table potatoes and potatoes for processing of starch. The yield per hectare for table potatoes for the entire country is estimated at 28 080 kg and the total production is estimated at 449 100 tonnes. The corresponding figures on potatoes for processing of starch are 34 570 kg per hectare and 273 900 tonnes, respectively.
The results for 2018 are based on a survey with a sample of 688 holdings for table potatoes and a sample of 167 holdings for potatoes for processing starch. The areas are based on statistics from IACS.
Tables 22 and 23 show the number of observations, the total and reduced yields per hectare in kg and total production in metric tonnes. Standard errors are also presented. Unharvested areas are shown in table 32. As for reduced yields, the yield per hectare is reduced for small, blighted and green potatoes for table potatoes. The reduction for potatoes for processing of starch is made only for blighted 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 unharvested area 2018 was estimated at 0.8% for table potatoes and 0.0% for potatoes for processing of starch.
The total production of temporary grasses is estimated at 3 286 400 tonnes and the yield per hectare at 3 770 kg per hectare, at 0% moisture content. The results are presented in tables 24–28.
The results are based on a sample of 1 500 holdings.
The survey covers only temporary grasses harvested as hay, hay-silage or silage including regrowth. It does not cover temporary grazings or regrowth from temporary grasses which are grazed.
