In December last year, the annual increase in agricultural purchase prices moderated from 5.2 percent in November to 0.6 percent, despite the 49.5 percent rise in the purchase price of pigs – according to the Central Statistical Office (KSH) website. December’s rate of increase was also below the annual average of 5.4 percent.

The average bridges high extremes, between a two-digit drop in wheat prices and a nearly 50 percent rise in the purchase price of pigs.

The average purchase price of crop and horticultural products in December was 1.4 percent lower than the high base of a year ago and declined by 2.0 percentage points, compared to the previous month. (MTI)
