This report provides preliminary results for the year 2005 for the yield per hectare and total production of cereal crops, dried pulses and oilseed crops. The results are presented for all of Sweden.
Cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops
Total production of cereal crops for the whole country is estimated at nearly 5.1 million tons. This is eight per cent less than 2004 and seven per cent less than the average for the previous five years.
The total production of winter wheat is estimated at about 2.0 million tons. This is equivalent to about 39 per cent of the total production of cereal crops.
Total production of peas is estimated at 66 000 tons, which is 25 per cent less than the previous year. Field beans is included in the crop yield survey for the second year. The total production of field beans is estimated at about 13 000 tons.
The 2005 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at about 200 000 tons. This is twelve per cent less than 2004 but 34 per cent more than the average for the previous five years. The total production of oil flax is estimated at about16 000 tons.
Since 1998, statistics on crop yields for cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops have been based on an interview survey. For the first time in 2005, the farmers can also use Internet as a tool for data delivery to Statistics Sweden.
The sample of the survey of 2005 consists of about 4 350 survey units. The selected farms are a random sample from throughout the country. These preliminary results are based on a subsample of 1 087 survey units. These units receive priority in the survey and in the subsequent data processing at Statistics Sweden. 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 2005. These area data are based on figures from the administrative database for agricultural subsidies. 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.
