This report provides preliminary results for the yield per hectare and total production of cereals, dried pulses and oilseeds for the year 2016. The results are presented for counties, production areas and for all of Sweden.
Cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops
Total production of cereal crops for the whole country is estimated at 5 447 300 tonnes. This is 12% less than in 2015 and at the same level as the average for the previous five years.
The total production of winter wheat is estimated at 2 495 100 tonnes and the total production of spring barley is estimated at 1 420 300 tonnes.
Total production of peas is estimated at 93 200 tonnes, which is 12% more than in the previous year. The total production of field beans (Vicia faba L.) is estimated at 103 700 tonnes.
The 2016 harvest of rape and turnip rape is estimated at 268 100 tonnes. This is 25% less than in 2015 and 16% less than the average for the last five years. The total production of oil flax is estimated at 16 800 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 2016 consists of 4 397 survey units. The selected farms are a random sample from throughout the 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 data on yield per hectare; area statistics are calculated from preliminary data on usage of arable land in 2016. 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 kg, total production in metric tonnes and crop areas. Standard errors are given for the yield per hectare, total production, unharvested areas and areas harvested as green fodder.
