    In this study, we investigated market integration and price transmission dynamics in agricultural supply chains in Nalanda, Bihar, focusing on twenty commodities. We utilized daily price data from Noorsarai and Harnaut village markets, the Bihar Sharif intermediate market, and the Patna City market with the aim of understanding the interrelationships among these prices. Our findings suggest that most crop prices tend to vary concurrently, necessitating adjustments for improved precision and accuracy in price assessments.

    Nepal

    Data from May indicates a persistent trend of modest price increases in Nepal. Year-on-year inflation for food and beverage prices was recorded at 5.5 percent, which, though lower compared to 6.9 percent in the previous month and significantly less than in April and May 2022, still denotes an escalation in food prices from an already elevated base. While the high inflation rate impacts all consumers, it is likely to disproportionately strain the finances of the poor, potentially jeopardizing food security. Moreover, the inflation rates for non-food items and services surged to 8.9 percent.
