This report provides final data for the year 2017 for organic and non-organic farming on yield per hectare and total production of cereals, dried pulses, oil­seed crops, annual plants harvested green, table potatoes and temporary grasses. The methods used for the crop production surveys for organic farming are the same as for the ordinary crop production surveys. The results are presented for counties, production areas and for the whole of Sweden. The production areas are shown in Map 1.

The tables show the number of observations, yield per hectare in kilogrammes (kg), total production in metric tonnes, crop areas, the share of the organic crop area compared to the total crop area, and the quota of the yield from organic farming and the yield from non-organic farming. Standard errors are given for yield per hectare and total production, unharvested areas and areas harvested as green fodder.

Cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops

The total production of cereal crops for the whole country from areas with organic farming is estimated at 390 600 tonnes. This is about 7% of the total production of cereals.

The total production of oats from areas with organic farming is estimated at 98 700 tonnes or almost 15% of the total production of oats. For winter wheat the corresponding estimates are 134 700 tonnes and about 4%. Among the cereals, winter wheat is the crop with the highest total production from the area with organic farming.

The total production of peas and field beans from areas with organic farming are estimated at 7 900 tonnes and 32 500 tonnes respectively. For peas, this production corresponds to almost 10% of the total production of peas and for field beans, the organic share of the total production is about 30%.

The 2017 total harvest of rape and turnip rape from areas with organic farming is estimated at 19 000 tonnes, which is 5% of the total production of rape and turnip rape.

Statistics on crop yields for cereals, dried pulses and oilseed crops have been based on an interview survey. The farmers can also use the Internet as a tool for data delivery to Statistics Sweden.

The sample of the 2017 survey for organic farming consists of 1 870 farmers. 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 the farm level are calculated by dividing the production by the crop area of the farm. Unharvested crop areas are included and will lower the yield per hectare. Crop area statistics have been calculated from data on areas with subsidies for organic farming and also areas that follow EU regulations for organic production, and is controlled by an approved inspec­tion. Crop areas cut as green fodder have been excluded when it comes to areas for the production of grain. Unharvested areas and areas cut as green fodder are presented in separate tables.

Potatoes

Total production of table potatoes from areas with organic farming is estimated at 36 600 tonnes. This is 7% of the total production of table potatoes. The organic potato yield per hectare is 63% of the yield compared with non-organic farms.

The potato results are based on a survey with a sample of 161 holdings.

The tables show the number of observations, the reduced yields per hectare in kg and total production in metric tonnes. Standard errors are also presented. Unharvested areas are shown in a separate table. As for reduced yields, the yield per hectare is reduced for small, blighted and green potatoes. These reductions are made with standard values. Adjustments in the reduced yields have also been made for unharvested areas, which have lowered the yield per hectare.

Temporary grasses

The total production of temporary grasses from areas with organic farming is estimated at 1 058 100 tonnes, at 16.5% moisture content. This is about 22% of the total production. The yield per hectare is 88% for the organic farming compared with the non-organic farming. The results are based on a survey with a sample size of 501 holdings.

The survey covers only temporary grasses harvested as hay, hay-silage or silage, and includes regrowth. It does not cover temporary grazings or regrowth from temporary grasses that are grazed.
