Illinois Ag Prices for April

Mon, 03 Jun 2019 15:56:02 CDT
The April Prices Received Index (Agricultural Production), at 92.9, increased 1.1 percent from March 2019. At 84.7, the
Crop Production Index decreased 1.2 percent. The Livestock Production Index, at 100.0, increased 2.6 percent. Producers
received higher prices for hogs, broilers, hay, and milk but lower prices for lettuce, market eggs, strawberries, and corn.
Compared with a year earlier, the Prices Received Index is up 0.1 percent. The Crop Production Index decreased 4.3
percent and the Livestock Production Index increased 4.6 percent. The indexes are calculated using commodity prices and
volumes of commodities that producers market. Increased monthly movement of milk, strawberries, oranges, and broilers
offset the decreased marketing of corn, cattle, soybeans, and hay. The Food Commodities Index, at 97.5, increased 0.3
percent from the previous month and 1.6 percent from April 2018.
