Input Price Index and Prices in Agriculture, Q4 2016
Kosovo Agency of Statistics (KAS) has published "Input Price Index and Prices in Agriculture" for Q4 2016 (2010 = 100).
The publication is based on the prices of agricultural inputs collected in Kosovo. The price collection was carried out in agricultural pharmacies, veterinary pharmacies, in companies, markets and other places where prices of agricultural inputs are available. Some prices of agricultural inputs are taken from consumer prices (HICP) by KAS.
The products, which form the basis for Input Price Index, are divided into two main groups: Goods and services currently consumed in agriculture (Input 1) and Goods and services contributing to agricultural investment (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, animal feed, maintenance of materials, maintenance of buildings, as well as other goods and services. Regarding the Input 2, goods and services contributing to agricultural investment, prices are collected for material (machinery and other equipment), buildings (farm buildings, other works except soil improvements, other buildings and their structures) and other.
The index of the third quarter of 2016 has declined to (-7.5%) for Input 1 compared to the same period of 2015. While the index for Input 2 has decreased (-0.2%) compared with the same period 2015. Meanwhile, the total input Index (Input 1 + Input 2) has declined (- 4.6%) compared with the same period of 2015.
