One fourth of the arable land needs new or refurbished drainage

Nearly 80 % of the arable land in Sweden has satisfactory drainage according to a survey performed by the Swedish Board of agriculture. 47 % of the land has tile drainage according to the same survey. 12 % of the arable land is in need of new tile drainage and 12 % of the land is in need of refurbished tile drainage according to the survey. For the next 5 years however, the farmers only plan to invest in new tile drainage or refurbish tile drainage on 6 % of the land.  

Less tile drainage 2016

The share of land with tile drainage is almost twice as large in 2016 compared with 1927 when the first estimation was made in Sweden. That year 25 % of the arable land had tile drainage. However, the share of land with tile drainage 2016 was slightly smaller than in 2013.

Half of all holdings are planning maintenance cleaning of ditches in the next five years

Open ditches are more common than culvert ditches. 76 % of the Swedish farmers have open ditches to some extent while 49 % have culvert ditches to some extent. The most common length of the combined ditches of a holding was 101 – 1 000 m.

49 % of the farmers have maintained their open ditches the last 5 years. As for culvert ditches that share is 22 % and one out of two does not know when the most recent maintenance of their culvert ditches was performed. Nearly two thirds of all farmers think there is a need for maintenance of the open ditches and over one third of them feel the same way about their culvert ditches. 51 % of the farmers plan to perform maintenance on their open ditches the coming 5 years while the share planning for culvert ditches maintenance is 19 %.

 

Only a small proportion of the holdings has arable land that is embanked and/or dependent on pumping for its drainage; this is the case with merely 4 % of the holdings. 32 % of the holdings belong to a ditch association; 41 % of these have an active management.
