Agricultural Producer Prices (Global - National - Annual/Monthly - FAOSTAT)

Agricultural Producer Prices (APP) are prices received by farmers for their produce at the farm gate; i.e. at the point where the commodity leaves the farm. APP do not cover the costs after the farm gate; e.g. transportation cost from the farm gate to the nearest market or first point of sale, warehousing costs, processing costs and market charges (if any) for selling the produce. FAOSTAT gives free access to food and agriculture data for over 245 countries and territories and covers all FAO regional groupings from 1961 to the most recent year available. Annual APP data are provided from 1991 to the previous year for over 160 countries and about 200 commodities, and monthly APP data are provided from January 2010 to December of the previous year for over 60 countries and about 200 commodities. APP are used, along with production data, to estimate value of production for a country, by commodity and in total, as well as Producer Price Indexes, which measure price inflation. APP also enable analysts to analyse price transmission and volatility.
