This literature review reviews all features relating to the development of an agricultural market information system, with a particular focus on information on market prices and on the use of new technologies for price data collection and dissemination. A detailed list of references is provided at the end of the document, including, where available, URLs to the resources. Readers are encouraged to refer to the original documents wherever possible: indeed, this review does not attempt a detailed summary of the documents cited, but rather seeks to emphasize the principal sources in the vast literature available. Similarly, while many of the most important market information systems are noted, this review is not intended as a compendium thereof and does not, therefore, list them comprehensively.
