Individual owners own 91 % of the agricultural land

The aim of this report is to describe the ownership structure of agricultural land as well as productive forest land owned in combination with agricultural land in Sweden. Individual owners own a very large share of the agricultural land, about 3.2 million hectares of agricultural land of which nearly 2.6 million hectares is arable land. On county level, individual owners own the smallest share of agricultural land in Stockholm County (77 %) and the largest share in Norrbotten County (98 %). About 52 % of the arable land owned by individual owners can be found on management units consisting of more than 30 hectares of arable land.  

 

Forest land owned in combination with agricultural land

The division in management units made in this report implies that a large share of Sweden’s productive forest land is owned in combination with agricultural land, more particularly 17 million hectares, which corresponds to 76 % of the total area of productive forest land. One should not interpret this as if 17 million hectares of productive forest land make up a resource for the country’s agricultural holdings. A large share of this area is likely managed within forestry companies rather than a resource in agricultural holdings. Individual owners own 54 % of the productive forest land owned in combination with agricultural land.      

 

High average age among the country’s land owners

About 58 % of the agricultural land owned by physical persons is owned by persons aged 55 years and older. By comparison, around 31 % of the Swedish population is 55 years and older. The share of young land owners is largest in Gotland County whilst Stockholm County has older land owners than the average. Over 20 % of the agricultural land in Gotland County is owned by people younger than 45 years. The corresponding value for Stockholm County is 11 %. About 73 % of all agricultural land owned by physical persons is owned by men, the remaining 27 % is owned by women.
