Grain disposition of establishment, category
Grain disposition refers to the measure of grain products that have been disposed of during a specified period. At the national level, disposition includes exports, ending farm and commercial stocks, and domestic disappearance.
Establishment refers to the level at which accounting data required to measure production is available (principal inputs, revenues, salaries and wages). The establishment, as a statistical unit, is defined as the most homogeneous unit of production for which the business maintains accounting records from which it is possible to assemble all the data elements required to compile the full structure of the gross value of production (total sales or shipments, and inventories), the cost of materials and services, and labour and capital used in production.
