Abstract

There are wide discrepancies in the avaliable data on estimates of production of fruits and vegetables, fresh and processed, on the one hand, and their consumption on the other. The comparision of production and consumption data shows that main causes of te discrepancies are the very high farm gate prices used for the valuation of fresh fruits and the overestimation of the quantum of fruits production at the farm fate/exfactory price as well as the share of processing the estimates turn out to be 46.6 per cent of the orginal estimates and the value of fruit production is 19.9 per cent of the orginal unrevised estimates
