The study indicated as well that the high prices of food commodities in the consumption markets are not only attributed to the exchange rate liberation but to other factors as well like the great size of marketing margins. As to the needs of agricultural production, the exchange rate liberation increased their prices. Thus, there is an increase in the Feddan production cost and the farming prices Finally, the study recommended that it is necessary for the state to adopt the decision of farmer support particularly in the needs of productions besides the necessity to control markets and enact laws and legislations that forbidden the manipulation of wholesale prices and the consumer.
