Output

Compared to last month the price index for all crop products fell by 1.4%.

The fresh vegetable price index fell 2.4% in November. Cauliflower prices rose 40% as demand increased over the month and the limited supplies were of high quality. Cucumbers fell 29% due to lack of demand and competition from Dutch imports.

Main crop potatoes dropped by 3.7% in November as supply continued to outstrip demand. Overall potatoes were down 19.9% on this time last year.

The milk price continues to fall and is 2.7% down on October and 16.3% down on November 2013. Continued high levels of domestic milk production and low global dairy commodity prices have pushed the price down and is in contrast to the seasonal uplift usually seen in prices at this time of year.

Inputs

Animal feed prices rose by 2% in November.

Straight feed rose by 4.7% while compound feed prices rose by 0.2%. Straight feed prices rose due to the recovery of cereal prices but are still 15% lower than in November 2013.
