This Duck Situation Report presents the duck industry in terms of volume of production, inventory by region, and average farmgate prices.

Concepts and Definitions
Volume of production refers to the number of tended/raised duck disposed for dressing including animals shipped-out for dressing. This is expressed in metric tons, liveweight.
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 cost, such as transport and other marketing costs (if any) incurred in selling the produce, are not included in the farmgate prices. The 2020 to 2021 farmgate prices included in this special release were sourced from the Price Statistics Division (PSD), while the 2022 farmgate prices were based on the surveys of Livestock and Poultry Statistics Division (LPSD).
