IV. Concepts and Definition of Terms
Percentage of produce marketed–is that portion of total production which enters the marketing channels. It measures the proportion of total quantity marketed or sold and quantity given to landowner to total production. Landowner’s share is included based on the assumption that the bulk of the share will also be marketed.
Consumer Price Index (CPI) – indicates the change in the average prices of a fixed basket of goods and services commonly purchased by households relative to a base year.
Farm Price - are prices received by farmers for the sale of their crops at the first point of sale. These prices depend on the place of sale which may be within the production site, at the wholesale market, retail market or other areas.
Retail Price - refers to the price at which a commodity is sold in small quantities for consumption.
Farm-retail price gap – measures the price mark-up of the commodity as it leaves the farmgate to the different marketing channels until it reaches the consumer. It is the difference between the farm price and the retail price expressed as percentage of the farm price. It indicates the percentage increase in the price from the first point of sale to the retail level.
Farmer’s share in final price – indicates the proportion of the prices received by farmers (farm price) to the final price (retail price) of the commodity. This gives a measure of the share of the producers compared to the share of the traders.
