Abstract

Determining monthly fluctuations in the prices of wheat and corn in Serbia can indicate economically optimal time for selling wheat or corn. The paper analyzes monthly movement of the prices of wheat and corn in Serbia in the period from 2005 to 2015. The research included the analysis of the selling prices (i.e. the prices at which agricultural enterprises and cooperatives sell grain) and the purchase prices (i.e. the prices at which farmers sell their grain). The highest level of the average purchase prices of wheat were reached in March and May, while the average selling prices of wheat were the highest in February. For corn, both the purchase and selling prices reached their peak in July.

Keywords
