Commodity Markets, Agricultural Commodities, Third Quarter, World Commodity Markets


In spite of random swings during the period, the prices of most of Nigeria's agricultural export commodities continued to maintain the rising trend observed since the forth quarter of 1982. The trend reflects the continued decline in the supply of most of the commodities due to adverse weather conditions and in some cases natural disasters. Detailed analysis of developments in some of the major commodities markets are given in this article.
