The price increase for crop products was due, among other things, to cereal prices. In September 2022, the price increase for cereals was 41.0% higher than in the same month of the previous year. In August 2022, the price increase had been 39.7%.
Fruit prices down, vegetable and potato prices up
Producer prices for fruit in September 2022 were 4.7% lower than a year ago. Among others, there were price decreases for dessert apples with -20.6%.
In vegetables (+22.8% compared to September 2021), prices for cucumbers (+48.0%), cauliflower (+29.2%), and cabbage vegetables (+24.5%) in particular increased. The price increase for table potatoes in September 2022 compared to the same month of the previous year was +73.0%.
Prices for animal products increased by 49.1%, for milk by 57.5
Animal product prices in September 2022 were 49.1% higher than in September 2021, while milk prices in September 2022 were 57.5% higher than in the same month a year earlier, up from +55.9% year-on-year in August 2022. Thus, the year-on-year price increase for milk has continued steadily since March 2021. In July 2022, the year-on-year price increase had exceeded 50% for the first time.
Prices for livestock rose by 43.0% in September 2022 compared with September 2021, compared with a year-on-year price increase of 35.5% in August 2022. In this context, prices for slaughter pigs increased by 63.1% in September 2022. This increase was mainly due to the low supply of pigs ready for slaughter, while demand remained stable. The price increase for cattle was 21.1% compared to the same month last year. Poultry prices were 35.5% higher in September2022 than in September2021. This was mainly due to higher prices for chicken (+37.8%).
The index of producer prices of agricultural products measures the development of agricultural sales prices (excluding sales tax) in Germany and thus shows price developments at the first economic stage. The survey date is the 15th of each reporting month.
