Price of agricultural produces plays a decision role to reflect the overall price trend in the Chinese market. It is considered as the price foundation among all commodities and result in volatility in overall price level. In recent years, rapid development of national economy and urbanization boost the price of agricultural produces. Three main types of agricultural produces include cereal (wheat, rice and corn), oil-bearing crops (rapeseed, soybean and peanut) and vegetables will be analyzed in this report. Purchasing Price Index (PPI) will be used to analyze the price of these main agricultural produces.

The report will process factor analysis of increasing agricultural produces prices and list five main reasons influencing change in price, such as:

- Total costs
- Transportation cost and multifarious circulation links
- Minimum cereal purchasing prices
- Urbanization and change in consumption structure
- Adverse weather condition and natural disaster

By adopting Grey Markov Forecast Model, it is predict that PPI of cereal will increase steadily for a long time. However, oil-bearing crops’ PPI will face a sharp decline from 2014 to 2015. Finally, at the end of this report, it will put forward four suggestions in order to stabilize price of agricultural produces as well as prevent and cope with the effects of inflation.
