At the beginning of the year, several major trends were confirmed for output prices in the agricultural sector. First, the price of potatoes rose by almost 30 % between December and January. Prices in this new season remain well above those of the previous season. Second, the index for vegetables has continued to increase since October and remains on average higher than in previous years.
As for animal production, the drop in egg prices should be noted. Prices for brown eggs of 62.5 grams went down from 6.60€ per 100 units to 4.73€ between December and January.
