Summary

The total agricultural area in applications is about the same as last year

According to the applications for EU-subsidies, the total area of arable land decreased by about 1 % or 12,900 hectares between the years 2007 and 2008 in Sweden. The total area of pasture and meadowland has decreased by about 5 % or 29,100 hectares. Thus the total agricultural area has decreased by roughly 1 % or 42,000 hectares.

While the areas under cereals increase, the potatoes and sugar beets decreases.

The cultivation of cereals is estimated to increase by 10.1 % or 100,500 hectares in the year 2008 compared to 2007. The increase of spring barley represents 78 % of the total increase. Triticale and winter wheat is the only cereal crops that decrease, while the other cereal crops are expected to increase. Higher prices for cereals in combination with the new directive consider fallow land is the main reason for this rather big increase in areas under cereals. The total area of potatoes is estimated to be 27,000 hectares in the year 2008, which is an increase by roughly 5 % or 1,500 hectares since 2007. The area of sugar beets continues to decreases due to the sugar reform in Sweden and EU. It decreases 10 % or 4,100 hectares in the year 2008 compared to 2007.

The area of fallow land decreases substantial

The cultivation of fallow land drop roughly 48 % between 2007 and 2008. From 281,600 hectares to 147,500 hectares. The new directive from EU to drop the demands of having fallow land to collect single farm payment is the reason to this substantial decrease.
