Agricultural infrastructure index


Qualitative scoring by the Economist Intelligence Unit


Agricultural infrastructure index is a composite indicator that measures the ability to store and transport crops to market based on assessment of a country's road, rail, port, air transport, and irrigation infrastructure, as well as investment in crop storage facilities. A higher score indicates more developed infrastructure.


Agricultural infrastructure is key to minimize food losses along supply chains. It may also enable diversification of food production into perishable foods, such as fruits and vegetables. In remote areas, food access may be constrained by limited infrastructure.
