Notes:
* There were two price settlements in 1974: the prices shown are those fixed in the Autumn.
† On the date when the ECU first applied for the purposes of the common agricultural policy (9 April 1979) 1 ua=1·208953 ECU.
‡No separate price for wheat of breadmaking quality prior to 1976/77.
║From 1977/78 the intervention price for sugar is shown inclusive of storage levy.
¶ Intervention measures are triggered when market prices reach fixed proportions of the guide price for the different types. The prices shown are the guide price for Type A 11.
● Intervention buying is available for specified carcase categories at different times of the year at specified buying in prices.
▀ No pigmeat intervention buying schemes have operated in the EC in these years. A special, short term scheme will operate in part of Belgium from 3 April until 15 April due to market disruption caused by disease.
