Farm input prices

Since 1976, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry has conducted a monthly survey of prices for over 50 representative farm inputs. These prices are collected by the Alberta Federation of Agriculture in partnership with the Statistics and Data Development Section. As of April 1, 2018, this project was sponsored by Canadian Agricultural Partnership, a federal-provincial-territorial agreement.
