stubble

" of

vegetables

in the

northern producing areas

, resulting in a phased tightening of market supply, and at the same time an increase in cross-regional transportation. The rise in prices of agricultural and agricultural materials has also contributed to the rise in vegetable prices to a certain extent.

  According to Zhang Jing, since late September this year, large-scale and long-term rainfall has occurred in northern vegetable production areas such as Beijing, Liaoning, Inner Mongolia, Shandong, and Hebei. In some areas, rainfall has reached the extreme value of the same period in previous years, resulting in

widespread inundation of autumn vegetables

We have replanted three consecutive crops, and now the cabbage is also growing. It is not very uniform, and the output has been reduced by half compared to normal years.

  According to reports, heavy rainfall has caused a large increase in the prices of fresh and tender leafy vegetables and solanaceous vegetables. From the national average wholesale price in October, 26 kinds of 28 kinds of vegetables have increased month-on-month. Among them, the

price of cucumber has risen by 79.5% and the price of spinach. The month-on-month increase was 45.1%.
