Since 1976, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, Statistics and Data Development Section has conducted a monthly survey of prices for selected Alberta farm inputs. The prices are collected by the Alberta Federation of Agriculture in partnership with the Statistics and Data Development Section.

In 2001, a comprehensive review of the survey was undertaken, to ensure that the inputs monitored were relevant and consistent with Alberta’s current farming practices and that there was adequate coverage across the province. Effective July 2001, the number of farm inputs priced monthly was increased to 53 from 45, and the number of centers monitored across Alberta expanded to 25 from 18. The revised list of farm inputs included a number of new inputs, while some of the old inputs were dropped or modified. Further reviews were completed in June 2006, July 2007, and January 2012 to ensure continued relevance. As such, some farm inputs in the 2014-2015 are not comparable on a “year-over-year” basis with the previous years.

Just to caution, the monthly average prices in this report are intended to serve as a guide only. Actual prices at specific locations may differ from these provincial averages provided in the report.
