This report shows statistics on the Swedish organic horticulture 2017, as defined by the rules established by the EU regulation (EG) 834/2007. Only fully converted production is included, while production on land under conversion is counted as conventional production.
The area utilized for open ground organic horticulture amounted to 1 959 hectares in 2017, representing just under 15 % of the entire Swedish horticultural open ground area. Of this area, 58 % was accounted for by vegetable production, while production of berries, fruit and ornamental plants accounted for 25 %, 16 % and less than 1 % respectively.
By far, the most cultivated organic crop was carrot, which was grown on 450 hectares, resulting in a production of 26 000 tonnes, amounting to a quarter of the total carrot production in 2017. Other prominent crops in the organic open ground cultivation were apples, blackcurrants, strawberries, cabbage and onion.
The organic horticultural greenhouse cultivation used just over 260 000 square meters during 2017, representing 9 % of the total horticultural greenhouse area. Two thirds of the organically cultivated greenhouse area was devoted to edible crops and the remaining third to ornamental plants. The share of various greenhouse crops produced organically differed widely. Over 99 % of the Swedish aromatic plant production and 75 % of the greenhouse lettuce output was produced using organic methods in 2017, while the share of organically produced cucumber and tomato only reached 1 % and 3 % respectively.
