A Report on Producer Price Index for Agriculture, Horticulture, and Traditional Livestock Farm Practices (Adjusted) in the Spring of Year 1396

Agricultural products, from the production finishing stage to the final consumption have diverse prices due to different factors, which are commonly called farm gate price, wholesale price and retail price. In order to reach a price which solely comes from agricultural activities, it is necessary to omit elements such as transportation and warehousing costs, brokers' profit, and so on. The report describes producer price of agricultural products (farm gate price). By comparing the information obtained from this report with the results of the retail price surveys, the role of brokers and other elements effective in the formation of different prices when the products get to the final consumer can be reviewed.
