Agricultural markets and prices
The European Commission closely monitors the price situation and markets developments for agricultural commodities and food and publishes various reports throughout the year.
Commodity price monitoring
Every month, a Commodity price dashboard for the most representative agricultural products and consumer food prices is published. These monthly reports will be complemented with an in depth analysis on price developments that will be published twice a year.
Short-term outlook for the arable crop, meat and dairy markets
A Short-term outlook for the arable crop, meat and dairy markets in the European Union is published three times per year (in February, June and September). It is based on reflections of market experts within the Directorate General for Agriculture and Rural Development of the European Commission, using the latest data available.
Medium-term outlook with the prospects for agricultural markets and income
A Medium-term outlook with the prospects for agricultural markets and income for the next decade is published once a year (generally in December). The outlook consists of a set of market and sector income prospects elaborated on the basis of specific assumptions regarding macroeconomic conditions, the agricultural and trade policy environment, weather conditions and international market developments.
Specific analysis on the evolution of the World and EU agricultural markets are prepared every year and published in the form of Agricultural Markets Briefs.
Food supply chain
Improving price transparency represents a key issue for the functioning of the food supply chain.
Data on agricultural markets and agricultural trade can be found in the annual reports.
