This report provides preliminary results for the year 2008 on 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 5.2 million tonnes. This is four percent more than 2007 and five percent more than the average for the previous five years.
The total production of winter wheat is estimated at about 2 million tonnes. This is equivalent to 38 percent of the total production of cereal crops.
Total production of peas is estimated at about 31 000 tonnes, which is 19 percent less than the previous year. The total production of field beans is estimated at about 13 000 tonnes.
The 2008 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at about 260 000 tonnes. This is 17 percent more than 2007 and 30 percent more than the average for the previous five years.
Since 1998, statistics on crop yields for cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops have been based on an interview survey. Since 2005, the farmers can also use internet as a tool for data delivery to Statistics Sweden.
The sample of the survey of 2008 consists of about 4 377 survey units. The selected farms are a random sample from throughout the country. These preliminary results are based on a sub sample of 1 094 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 tonnes 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 agricultural land in 2008. 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 tonnes and crop areas. Standard errors are given for the yield per hectare and total production.
