This report provides preliminary results for the year 2004 for the yield per hectare and total production of cereals, dried pulses and oilseeds. The results are presented for counties, production areas and for all of Sweden.
Cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops
Total production of cereal crops for the whole country is estimated at 5 512 000 tons. This is five per cent more than 2003 and five per cent more than the average for the previous five years.
The total production of winter wheat is estimated at 2 156 000 tons. This is equivalent to almost 40 per cent of the total production of cereal crops.
Total production of peas is estimated at about 87 000 tons, which is ten per cent more than the previous year. Field beans (Vicia faba L.) is included in the crop yield survey for the first time in 2004. The total production of field beans is estimated at about 12 000 tons.
The 2004 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at about 230 000 tons. Compared to the previous year, this is an increase of 77 per cent. This dramatic rise is explained by both higher yields per hectare and increased cultivation of rape and turnip rape. The total production of oil flax is estimated at fully11 000 tons.
Since 1998, statistics on crop yields for cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops have been based entirely on an interview survey. The sample of the survey of 2004 consists of about 4 350 survey units. The selected farms are a random sample from throughout the country. The survey was carried out in October and November. Information was requested for total farm production in tons of these crops and their average moisture content. Yields per hectare at the farm level are calculated by dividing the total production by the crop areas of the farm. The total production was calculated from data on yield per hectare; area statistics were calculated from preliminary data on usage of arable land in 2004. These area data are based on figures from the administrative database for agricultural subsidies, IACS. Crop areas cut as green fodder have been excluded.
The tables show the number of observations, yield per hectare in kg, total production in metric tons and crop areas. Standard errors are given for the yield per hectare and total production.
