DEAR NEW FARM:
Your organic price index is a great tool; I was wondering
if you keep records of past price lists. I would like to generate
average annual prices for organic fruits and vegetables for
the San Francisco, California, market, if possible.
Thank you for your interest in the Organic Price Report
(OPR) data. While we do indeed have archived historical price
data, we are not at this time allowed by the USDA (our project
funder) to make that data available to the public.
We are hoping to receive guidelines from the Risk Management
Agency (RMA) shortly on how we can make the data available,
and we will make a public announcement on this matter once
it has been resolved.
Thanks for your interest, and for reading New Farm.
us with comments, suggestions and questions.
