Step 2: Create multipliers

Producer-value multipliers reflect the value of the commodity as it leaves the farm gate or manufacturer's door. Port-value multipliers include the producer value and shipping, handling, and storage charges between the farm or manufacturer and the port. At which stage of export would you like to measure the multiplier effects?

Producer: producer margins are set at 100%
Port: enter your own producer, transportation, and wholesale and retail trade margins
Sector Your margins/shares (%) ERS margins/ shares (%)



Wholesale and retail trade

TOTAL (max 100):   
Port margins may not add up to 100% due to rounding
