Cost of red pepper
Dear kosis For a study on bell pepper production costs in Asia I found an interesting table on your website: https://kosis.kr/statHtml/statHtml.do?orgId=101&tblId=DT_1EC0062&language=en&conn_path=I3 However the figure of 189,373 per 10kg seems high. Could you please verify, if this is correct? Thanks much.
Answer Statistics Korea/2021-12-07
Dear Youri, Thank you for visiting the KOSIS website. In 2020, the production costs of pepper recorded 3,707,979 won per 10a, and 189,373 won per 10kg. The production of pepper per 10a recorded a year-on-year drop owing to bad crop conditions, which resulted in the rise in the production costs per 10kg compared to 139,202 won per 10kg in 2019. In addition, Statistics Korea releases pepper production data on the basis of fully dried pepper. Therefore, statistical users are advised to pay attention to data on the production and the production costs of pepper. Best regards, Statistics Korea
