Farming In Denmark

Denmark is located in the Central Northern part of Europe. It is part of the Scandinavian
countries, thus it has a relatively cold weather all year long.


75% of Denmark's land is used for farming. Because of it's export of agricultural and
industrial produce, it enjoys one of the highest standard of living in the world.


This case study is meant to study the farming in Denmark.

Types of Farming:

Denmark is divided into 3 areas: Jutland, Fyn, and Zealand. Farming is found in all of those areas.

Denmark's types of farming are: Dairy farming, Crop farming, Animal farming, and Mixed farming

In Jutland, the least intensive farming is found. There they mainly grow rye, oats, and
potatoes. Pasture land is also found there.


In Fyn and Zealand, the most Intensive farming is found. There they grow cereals with root crops, and pigs.

Some areas in Jutland and Fyn are also used for mixed farming.

Is the Land Suitable for Farming?:

Denmark's land wasn't very fertile in the Nineteenth century. It had Sandy soils in the
West and Clay land in the East. The government invested a lot of money into making those
lands fertile.


The low lying and relatively flat land in Denmark added to the existing fertile soils, and
partially favorable climate (Winter frosts Warm and sunny summer with rainfall over the
average) makes Denmark ideal for cereal farming. Up till the 1870's, Denmark was a major
exporter of wheat and barley. But eventually, it had to diversify due to hard competition.
That was when it realized the high demand for dairy products in foreign countries (mainly
Britain), thus it started to export dairy products along with cereals. This meant it had
to rely on pasture land for rearing animals


Today, Denmark's land is typical for the types of farming found there. The land remains
ideal for cereal farming. Pasture land is also found for cattle. Pigs and poultry remain
inside a barn all year long. The land is also ideal for growing potatoes and other root
crops. Stalinization isn't a problem in Denmark due to a high annual rainfall.


Where in the World can Similar Farming be Found?:

Mixed farming: Mixed farming can be found in North America (i.e. USA), in Asia (i.e.
Russia), and in Europe (i.e. France and Spain). Mixed farming can be also be found in the
rest of the continents.


Dairy farming: Dairy farming is found world wide. It is found in Israel, Italy, USA, France, Britain, and many more.

Crop farming: Commercial farming can be found plenty in Europe. It exists in countries
such as France, Italy, Greece, Germany, Spain, Britain, and more.


Animal farming: Animal farming can also be found world wide. It exists in Italy, France, USA, Israel, Britain, and more.
