Florida Farm Prices
D. L. Brooke, A. H. Spurlock, and G. N. Rose'
INTRODUCTION
Information on prices received by farmers is very important
to many people, firms, and institutions. On a national basis
price data are used in computing cash receipts from farm mar-
ketings, gross and net farm income, and agriculture's contri-
bution to the gross national product. They are valuable to
economists, farmers, farm organizations, legislators, industry
management, and students for such purposes as projecting
future price trends, valuing production and sales of agricultural
commodities, and administering federal programs. They are
compiled regularly at the state level by the Crop and Livestock
Reporting Service and transmitted to the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture for weighting, processing, and conversion to
a national series, which is published on a monthly and annual
basis. Too, a national index of prices received is constructed
and kept current by Washington.
State data, on the other hand, are published only on a
monthly basis with annual averages at the end of each year or
season. No great amount of state price data for a long period
of years is published by USDA, nor do they construct index
numbers on a state basis. That task is left to the discretion of
the individual states. Florida has published a long series of
price data in a single volume in 1944 in Florida Agricultural
Experiment Station Bulletin 399.

PURPOSE OF STUDY
One purpose of this study is to bring up to date a history
of Florida agricultural prices and to relate those prices to prices
paid by farmers and to certain other farm costs. A further
purpose is to show the relationship of Florida farm prices to
United States farm prices received and paid and to wholesale
prices of all commodities in the United States over time.
A third, and important purpose, is to present index numbers
of all farm product prices and selected groups of prices. They
have been prepared to measure price changes in Florida farm
products by expressing prices as percentage of a given base

price.2 The period of time covered by the given base price is
comparable to that used by the United States Department of
Agriculture in order to make comparisons with United States
prices as reliable and convenient as possible.

SOURCE OF DATA
All prices, quantities sold, and production data used in
developing the index numbers and other information reported
here are from the official records of the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture. The prices reported are fifteenth-of-the-
month farm prices for all commodities except wholesale milk,
commercial broilers, citrus, and vegetable crops. Wholesale milk
prices are monthly weighted averages of milk eligible for fluid
market sold to plants including surplus diverted to manufac-
turing. Broiler prices are monthly averages for commercial sales
to processors. Citrus prices represent the monthly weighted
average equivalent packinghouse-door return per box for all
methods of sale, whether packed or sold on-tree or sold for
processing. Prices for vegetable crops are monthly weighted
average f.o.b. prices. Major sources of data are shown in the
Bibliography.

FACTORS AFFECTING FARM PRICES
Many factors are involved in the explanation of price
changes. Some prices may be controlled by local supply and
demand conditions in certain instances, whereas in others, prices
are affected more by national or world conditions or supply and
demand. Many commodity prices are affected by day-to-day
changes reflecting opinions of buyers and sellers as to supply
and demand conditions, or by seasonal changes in prices due to
production peaks and storage costs. Most prices vary inversely
with the supply of the product available.
Over a period of years the price of a single commodity may
change relative to other commodities, or to the general price
level. These changes may be caused by discovery or develop-
ment of substitutes, by technological improvements resulting in
greater productivity or lower farm costs, or by developing and
shifting to lower cost farming areas. Changes in consumer pur-
chasing power and food habits also may affect some product
prices.
Farm prices are affected by changes in the general price

level. When the general price level rises or falls, not all prices
rise and fall alike. Since the farmer is largely a producer of
raw materials, his prices are usually among the first to change
when prices are rising or falling.

COMBINED INDEX OF 36 FLORIDA FARM PRODUCTS

The index shows the general movement of prices for 36 of
the most important crops and livestock products in the state
since 1940 (Figure 1). Table 1 in Appendix A shows the com-
modities included, the weight assigned to each, and the method
of construction.
The index is strongly influenced by the movement of citrus,
vegetable, and livestock prices, and influenced less by field crop
prices. Citrus accounted for 46.3 percent, vegetables for 24.6
percent, and livestock for 22.6 percent, respectively, of the total
weight in the period 1953-57.

FLORIDA FARM PRICES AND THE
GENERAL PRICE LEVEL

The index of wholesale prices of all commodities prepared
by the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is one of the most com-
monly accepted indicators of the general price level. It is used

here as a basis for comparison of the movement of the Florida
farm price index as shown in Figure 1. The index of Florida
farm prices rose more rapidly than United States wholesale
prices during World War II. It dropped below the wholesale
price index in 1947 and 1948 because of the extremely low citrus
prices in those years. A recovery in 1949 and 1950 was followed
by seven seasons of lower Florida farm prices. Since 1957
Florida farm prices have followed United States wholesale prices
more closely than in earlier years, except for the higher prices
of 1963 and 1964 when citrus prices were elevated materially
as a result of weather damage to the crop.

RELATIONSHIP OF PRICES RECEIVED TO PRICES PAID

Prices Paid by United States Farmers for Commodities,
Interest, Taxes and Farm Wage Rates

There is no index of prices paid by Florida farmers, but the
United States Department of Agriculture does prepare a monthly
and annual index of prices paid by farmers for the nation as a
whole. It represents changes in the cost to farmers of a fixed
bill of goods at retail. This index includes prices of commodities
used in living and production and payments for interest, taxes,
and farm labor. It is more representative of the level of prices
paid by farmers than is the index of United States wholesale

which are not uniform for all parts of the country.
In determining the exchange ratio or per-unit purchasing
power of Florida farm prices, the index of retail prices paid by
farmers in the United States for commodities used in living and
production has been used. This is not completely accurate, as
Florida farmers do not buy the same items or same amounts
per capital as the average for all farmers in the United States.
However, if such an index were available for Florida, it prob-
ably would show approximately the same general trends.
The purchasing power, or exchange ratio, of Florida farm
products (with 1957-59 = 100) was favorable to Florida farmers
generally from 1940 to 1950. From 1950 to 1970 it was 100 or
above in only five years, the last one being 1964 (Figure 2).
Florida Farm Land Values
The average value of land and buildings per acre has risen
more rapidly than farm prices (Figure 3). Average land values
increased more than eight times from 1940 to 1969, while farm
prices increased by only 2.7 times in the same period.

Comparison of Farm Prices in Florida and the United States
Florida farm prices followed closely the movement of United
States farm prices in the early 1940's and were relatively lower
from 1946 through 1956 (Figure 4). Since 1957 Florida prices
have followed more closely the changes in United States prices-
though the movement of Florida prices has been more erratic,
reflecting the price movements of citrus. Except for periods of
high citrus prices, United States farm prices index has averaged
slightly higher than the Florida farm prices index.

PURCHASING POWER OF FLORIDA FARM PRODUCTS
The purchasing power, or exchange ratio, of the farm prod-
ucts used in the index is calculated by dividing the index of the
average annual price received by Florida producers by the

' Purchasing power as used in this bulletin refers to the exchange value per
unit, or ratio existing between prices received and prices paid. In its
broader sense, purchasing power refers to buying power of total income
received which is affected by quantities sold as well as prices received
per unit.

average annual index of prices paid by farmers in the United
States for commodities used in living and production, interest,
taxes, and farm wage rates.
As previously explained, Florida farmers do not buy the same
items or the same amounts as do all United States farmers; but
despite these limitations the index of prices paid by United States
farmers is believed to represent more nearly than any other
available index the levels of prices paid by Florida producers.
The purchasing power per unit or exchange ratio of a crop
or product is the best measure of its price advantage or dis-
advantage. When the purchasing power is high, i.e., above 100,
it indicates a relatively favorable position for a commodity; and
when below 100, an unfavorable price relationship.


GROUP PRICE INDEX NUMBERS

Field Crops

Since the grass, oil, fiber, and tobacco crops account for only
6.4 percent of the weight in the composite index, they have been
grouped together as field crops in the computation of the index.
The weight of the commodity groups in the field crop index is
as follows: tobacco, 50.3 percent; sugarcane, 22.4 percent; pea-
nuts and soybeans, 14.0 percent; cotton lint, 7.0 percent; corn,

4.6 percent; hay, 1.2 percent; and oats, 0.5 percent. Florida
field crops were in a favorable price position from 1940 to 1958
but have been in a less favorable position since 1959 (Figure 5).

All Livestock and Products

All livestock and livestock products sales account for 22.6
percent of the weight in the composite index. Of that amount,
meat animals are 10.6 percent; milk, 8.4 percent; and poultry
and poultry products, 3.6 percent. In terms of purchasing power
this group of products was above 100 from 1940 to 1953 and has
been below 100 most years since 1954 (Figure 6). The pur-
chasing power of poultry and poultry products was more favor-
able than that of meat animals or milk at wholesale from 1940
to 1958 but has been unfavorable since that date (Figure 7).

Citrus

The citrus group index makes up 46.3 percent of the weight
of the combined index of all farm prices. In the citrus index
itself round oranges account for 77 percent of the weight, tan-
gerines about 3 percent, temples 2 percent, grapefruit 17 per-
cent, and limes about 1 percent. Limes were dropped from the
index in 1969 when the official price series was discontinued.

alent packinghouse-door returns to growers for all methods of
sale were used. This takes into consideration the sales to
processors, and "on-tree" sales, as well as sales of packed fruit
for fresh consumption. Too, sales at that point are most nearly
comparable to the f.o.b. quotations of vegetables and do not give
an undue weight to citrus which the inclusion of processing costs
might exert.
Citrus prices as a group, and individually, have shown more
violent fluctuations from one period to another, as well as from
year to year, than have other prices used in the index (Figure 8).

Vegetables

The group index for vegetables includes 15 crops with
weights distributed as follows: beans, 11.0 percent; cabbage,
3.9 percent; celery, 9.5 percent; sweet corn, 8.5 percent; canta-
loups, 0.2 percent; cucumber, 6.7 percent; eggplant, 1.3 percent;
escarole, 1.8 percent; lettuce, 1.3 percent; peppers, 8.9 percent;

1.6 percent; tomatoes, 27.2 percent; and watermelons, 5.9
percent.

APPENDIX A
INDEX NUMBERS
Method of Construction of the Florida Farm Price
Index
Type of Index.-The index is of the weighted aggregative
type, using the formula 2 P1 Qo where Po equals prices in
2 Po Qo
the base period, P1 equals prices in the current period, and Qo
equals quantities sold in the base period. Fixed quantity weights
are used throughout the period of the index and are constant for
each month in the year.

Commodities Included.-The combined index included 36 com-
modities from September, 1951 through July, 1969, which rep-
resents 90 percent or more of the cash sales of Florida farm and
grove products (Table 1). Sweet corn was added to the index
in January, 1948; squash in October, 1950; and soybeans in Sep-
tember, 1951. Limes were dropped from the index in August,
1969, when USDA discontinued that monthly price series.

Systems of Weighting.-Commodities are weighted in the
index by the quantity of sales of each during the five calendar
years 1953 to 1957, inclusive. The use of quantities sold for
weights, rather than production, emphasizes the prices of prod-
ucts produced commercially, with little or no weight for home-
grown products consumed on the farm.
In the preparation of an index covering a long period by the
use of fixed weights, some compromise must be made in selecting
the period of sales to use for weights. The farther the index is
projected forward or backward from this base period, the less
representative the weights will be of current marketing. The
average annual sales during the period 1953-57 underweights
corn, peanuts, soybeans, sugarcane, and poultry products, all of
which have increased in production more than citrus and vege-
tables. Only cotton, shade tobacco, tangerines, beans, cantaloup,
and cucumbers have decreased production since 1953-57.
A period more recent than 1953-54 for quantity of sales
would give weights which would be more representative at the
present time but would be less accurate for the earlier index
numbers. Too, the period selected coincides with that presently
used by USDA (1971), thus permitting more direct comparison
with their current index series.

Base Period for Prices.-The arithmetic average price during
the 36 months from January, 1957 to December, 1959, inclusive,
was taken as a base price, or 100 percent for each commodity
(Table 1). This period was selected to provide an index directly
comparable with the United States farm price index. This period
has a disadvantage for Florida in that citrus prices and some
vegetable prices were out of line with other crop and livestock
prices during part of the period. However, it is doubtful that
one could find a consecutive 36 month period of Florida farm
prices when some commodities were not disadvantaged when
compared to all other prices received.

Computation of Index Numbers.-The base price of each
commodity in the index was multiplied by its quantity weight
to obtain a base value which represents 100 percent. Then all
current prices were multiplied by their respective quantity
weights to obtain current values. The values were then added
to groups with a final total for all commodities. To obtain the
combined index number for each month, the current value of
all commodities for the month was divided by the base value.
Thus for the month of May, 1970, the aggregate current value
of $802,131,598 was divided by the base value of $694,028,8381
to obtain the combined index of 115.6 (Table 1). The 12 monthly
indexes obtained each year were averaged without weighting
for the annual index.
Group index numbers were computed by dividing the current
group value by the base value of that group.

Method of Handling Discontinuous Price Series.-Twenty
commodities in the combined index do not have prices for every
month in the year. Because of their seasonal or perishable
nature, they are sold only in certain months (Table 2). Two
other commodities, type 62 tobacco and sugarcane, have only
annual price quotations. These crops are carried in the com-
bined index in months of no price quotations by inserting the
last price published every month until a new price quotation is
available. Thus for tomatoes, which are sold from November
to June, the June price would be used as the price for July,
August, September, and October, or until the new season begins.
This method would be of little value when applied to a single
crop; but when a number of crops are so treated, the effect is
largely offset by the varying marketing periods of the different
1Limes were dropped from the base in August, 1969.








short-season crops. The seasons do not open and close simul-
taneously; they are not of equal length; and, as some seasons
are closing, others are opening. The effect of this method on
the combined index is greatest in July, August, and September.
Most other months have a fairly adequate representation of
actual prices from sales.
The inclusion of closing (or last available) prices affects the
citrus and vegetable group indexes most. It may give them a
slight deviation from an index calculated by using average prices
only in months reported, or months of sale. The method used
gets away from the problem of a constantly changing base as
crops move into and out of season.
Price relatives are calculated only in months of sale for all
products. Base prices for individual commodities also represent
an arithmetic average of prices reported in the base period.

APPENDIX B
FARM PRICES
In Tables 10-43 the prices received by Florida producers for
individual commodities are given. For most products the price
received is for the fifteenth of the month. Prices of wholesale
milk, commercial broilers, vegetable crops, and citrus are
weighted monthly averages. The annual or season price shown
usually is an unweighted average of the monthly prices. For
individual vegetable crops and citrus a weighted season-average
price is shown. The weighted average price more nearly repre-
sents that upon which the income of growers is based than does
the unweighted average, since the quantity sold multiplied by
this price gives the cash income from sales of the crop.
All prices are the official figures from the United States
Department of Agriculture and were obtained from the Orlando
office of the Statistical Reporting Service or from publications
printed in Washington, D. C. Monthly prices shown are subject
to revision for about a year after being first reported.

APPENDIX C
PRICE RELATIVES
Price relatives were calculated by dividing each monthly
price by the arithmetic average price of that product during a
base period. The base period selected was the 36 months of
January, 1957 to December, 1959, inclusive. Thus, for corn
(Table 10) the prices for the 36 months, January, 1957 through
December, 1959, were added, and the total divided by 36 to
determine the average or base price of 126.5 cents per bushel.
The price of corn each month was then divided by the base price
to obtain the relative price (Table 44). The purpose of price
relatives is to facilitate comparisons between different com-
modities and different periods of time.
