Net cereal production PIN per capita data shows increase during price crisis


CEREAL NET PER CAP PRODUCTION (using FAO INDEX NUMBER in which 100=2002-04) from FML after reviewing print-out of cereal production per cap PIN from FAOSTAT Historic high PIN occurred in 2008 107.71; and that high was almost again in 2011 at 107.37. the longest stretch of consecutive PINs that are above 100 is from 2007-2011, five years that include the "food price crisis" and general elevation of food prices.
