Agricultural prices:

- In 2018, the agricultural products producer price index rose by 7.2% over 2017.

The price index of agricultural production means went up by 1.4% from 2017, an increase which can be partly explained by a rise in the price index of fertilisers and soil improvers (+17,9%) and energy and lubricants (+7.5%).
