The agricultural sector continues to be a pivotal force in economic diversification and growth. A key element underpinning this development is a robust marketing information system. Such a system operates continuously, methodically gathering, processing, and distributing data to support informed marketing decisions across agricultural value chains. The Department of Agribusiness and Marketing, within the Ministry of Agriculture, plays a crucial role in this process. It oversees the prompt collection, analysis, and dissemination of market information, thereby enabling stakeholders to make well-informed choices. The availability of accurate and timely market data enhances transparency and helps integrate markets more effectively. To aid this, the Ministry issues weekly, monthly, and quarterly market information bulletins through the Department of Agribusiness and Marketing. This issue offers an analysis of the price trends and supply dynamics for major agricultural commodities across the nation for the months of March and April 2024.
