This Duck Egg Situation Report presents the duck egg industry in terms of volume of production, laying flock inventory and average farmgate price.

Concepts and Definitions
Volume of production refers to the volume of duck egg disposed from locally-raised duck including those duck eggs which were shipped out to other region/province.
Inventory refers to the actual number of duck present in the farm as of a specific reference date.
Farmgate price refers to the price received by raisers for their produce at the location of farm. Thus, the marketing costs such as the transport and other marketing cost (if any) incurred in selling the produce are not included in the farmgate prices.
