2016 grower price index for fruit and nuts slipped

The 2016 grower price index for fruit and nuts slipped to 122 (2011=100) in April, down from 126 in March and from 127 in April 2015 (fig. 1). The grower price decline for fresh apples in April more than offset the increases for grapefruit and strawberries, pulling down the April index from the previous month. Relative to the same time last year, most major fruit prices were higher but the decline in orange prices was enough to drive down the overall index
