FAO Commodity Price Indices

Year: 2009 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
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).
