This report provides preliminary results for the year 2017 on the yield per hectare and total production of cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops. The results are presented for counties, production areas and for all of Sweden.
Cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops
The total harvest of cereal crops for the whole country is estimated at 5 953 200 tonnes. This is 9% more than in 2016 and 8% more than the average for the previous five years 2012-2016.
The total production of winter wheat is estimated at 3 003 100 tonnes and the total production of spring barley is estimated at 1 512 600 tonnes.
Total production of peas is estimated at 82 300 tonnes, which is 11% less than in the previous year. The total production of field beans (Vicia faba L.) is estimated at 108 900 tonnes.
The 2017 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at 377 200 tonnes. This is 40% more than in 2016 and 17% more than the average for the last five years. The total production of oil flax is estimated at 7 700 tonnes.
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 the Internet for data delivery to Statistics Sweden.
The sample of the survey of 2017 consists of 4 425 survey units. The selected farms are a random sample from the whole country. 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 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 are calculated from preliminary data on usage of arable land in 2017. 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 statistics on yields correspond with yield per hectare of sown areas minus areas cut as green fodder. Yields per hectare on harvested areas are not published. Unharvested areas and areas cut as green fodder are presented in separate tables.
The tables show the number of observations, yield per hectare in kg, crop areas and total production in metric tonnes. Standard errors are given for the yield per hectare, total production, unharvested areas and areas harvested as green fodder.
