This report provides preliminary results for the year 2018 on the yield per hectare and total production of cereals, dried pulses, oilseed crops, annual plants harvested green, and temporary grasses. 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 3 254 400 tonnes. This is 45% less than in 2017 and 43% less than the average for the previous five years 2013–2017.
Total production of peas is estimated at 49 000 tonnes, which is 40% less than in the previous year. The total production of field beans (Vicia faba L.) is estimated at 34 500 tonnes.
The 2018 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at 217 800 tonnes. This is 42% less than in 2017 and 34% more 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. Since 2005, the farmers can also use the Internet for data delivery to Statistics Sweden.
The sample of the survey of 2018 consists of 4 418 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 regional data on yield per hectare; area statistics are calculated from final data on usage of arable land in 2018. 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 kilogrammes (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.
The total production of temporary grasses is estimated at 3 279 700 tonnes dry matter which is a decrease of 20% compared with 2017. The yield per hectare is estimated at 3 760 kgs dry matter per hectare. The results are presented in tables 21–25.
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.
