FAO Commodity Price Indices

Although production has generally increased, the rising prices
coincided with extreme weather events in several major cereal
producing countries, which resulted in a depletion of cereal
stocks. The 2008 world cereal stocks are forecast to fall to their
lowest levels in 30 years time, to 18.7% of utilization or only 66
days of food (FAO, 2008).
