Input Price Index and Prices in Agriculture, 2010-2016
Kosovo Agency of Statistics (KAS) has published "Input Price Index and Prices in Agriculture".
To make comparisons and to observe changes, here are presented data for the years 2010-2016 and for the base year 2010.
The publication is based on the prices of agricultural inputs collected in Kosovo. The price collection was carried out in agricultural pharmacies, veterinary pharmacies, companies, markets and other places where prices of agricultural inputs are available. Some prices of agricultural inputs are taken from KAS consumer prices (HICP).
The products which are the basis for price index inputs are divided into two main groups: goods and services currently consumed in agriculture (Input 1) and goods and services that contribute to investment in agriculture (Input 2). Within the group of goods and services currently consumed in agriculture, prices are collected under the following groups: seeds and planting stock, energy; oils, fertilizers and soil improvers, products for plant protection and pesticides, veterinary expenses, feeding of animals, maintenance of materials, maintenance of buildings, as well as other goods and services. As regards of goods and services contributing to agricultural investment, prices are collected for material (machinery and other equipment), buildings and other (non-residential farm buildings, other works except soil improvers).
In 2016 the annual Index of inputs has decreased (-2.4%) to Input 1, compared with the same period of 2015. The Index for Input 2 has increased by 5.2% between 2016 and 2015. The index of total input (Input 1 + Input 2) has also increased by 0.6% compared with the same period of 2015.
In 2016 the annual Input Index increased to 15.6% for Input 1 compared to 2010. The index for Input 2 has increased by 15.8% between 2010 and 2016. The total input index (Input 1 + Input 2) has also increased to 15.7% compared with 2010.
