Abstract The preliminary All Farm Products Index of Prices Received by Farmers in January, at 217 percent, based on 1990-1992=100, increased 18 points (9.0 percent) from December. The Crop Index is up 22 points (9.7 percent) and the Livestock Index increased 2 points (1.2 percent). Producers received higher prices for lettuce, broilers, cattle, and corn and lower prices for milk, soybeans, eggs, and wheat. In addition to prices, the overall index is also affected by the seasonal change based on a 3-year average mix of commodities producers sell. Increased monthly movement of corn, soybeans, rice, and strawberries offset the decreased marketing of broilers, milk, wheat, and upland cotton. The preliminary All Farm Products Index is up 28 points (15 percent) from January 2012. The Food Commodities Index, at 197, increased 11 points (5.9 percent) from last month and increased 24 points (14 percent) from January 2012.
