    Technical note: Analysis of price incentives and disincentives for wheat in Kenya for the time period 2005-2013 2014

    This technical note is an attempt to measure, analyse and interpret price incentives and disincentives for wheat in Kenya over the period 2005-2013. For this purpose, yearly averages of domestic farm gate and wholesale prices are compared with reference prices calculated on the basis of the price of the commodity in the international market. The price gaps between reference prices and domestic prices along the commodity’s value chain indicate the extent to which incentives (positive gaps) or dis incentives (negative gaps) were present at the farm gate and wholesale level. The price gaps are expressed in relative terms as a percentage of the reference price, referred to as the Nominal Rate of Protection (NRP). These key indicators are used by MAFAP to assess the effects of policy and market performance on prices. This technical note begins with a review of the commodity’s production, consumption/utilization, marketing and trade, value chain and policy context (Chapter 2). It also provide s a detailed description of how key data elements were obtained and indicators were calculated (Chapter 3). The indicators were then interpreted in light of existing policies and market characteristics (Chapter 4), and key policy recommendations were formulated on the basis of this interpretation (Chapter 5). Finally, the note concludes with a few main messages, limitations of the analysis and areas identified for further research to improve the analysis.

    This technical note is an attempt to measure, analyse and interpret price incentives for sorghum in Ethiopia over the period 2005-2012. For this purpose, yearly averages of domestic farm gate and wholesale prices are compared with reference prices calculated on the basis of the price of the commodity in the international market. The price gaps between reference prices and domestic prices along the commodity’s value chain indicate the extent to which incentives (positive gaps) or disincentives (n egative gaps) were present at the farm gate and wholesale level. The price gaps are expressed in relative terms as a percentage of the reference price, referred to as the Nominal Rate of Protection (NRP). These key indicators are used by MAFAP to assess the effects of policy and market performance on prices.
