What is the rising trend of vegetable prices all over the country? According to media reports, in Shouguang, Shandong Province, the vegetable town of Dafushui, cilantro has been sold for 3 yuan or 1 or 2, and 'spent 10 yuan to buy 9 pieces of cilantro. 'some netizens published the price of Shouguang cilantro on August 23: 39.90 yuan / Jin. According to a jin of pork more than ten yuan calculation, a jin of coriander can buy three or four Jin of pork. Some netizens joked that as a vegetable base, Shouguang people can't afford to eat any more vegetables, and it has become a luxury to wash cilantro in hot pot. In less than a month, the price of cucumber and eggplant in Shandong Province increased by more than 50%, and that of tomato and onion by more than 20%. "Said Cui Xiaona, an analyst at Zhuo Chuang information.

1 jin coriander = 2 jin pork! Recently, a news headline attracted attention. According to the peninsula Metropolis Daily, the price of dishes in Qingdao has skyrocketed recently. The price of cilantro has increased from 9.98 yuan a Jin last month to 26.5 yuan, and the price of spinach has doubled.

Is the price of vegetables really going up so much?

In fact, not only in Qingdao, but also in many parts of the country.

According to Zhuo Chuang information monitoring, on August 21, the average price of vegetables in Shandong was 1.42 yuan / Jin, up 7.58% from August 1.

The price of Beijing food has also increased!

'in one day, the loofah rose from 7 yuan a Jin to 8 yuan; the rape is sold for 7 yuan now, and the brand with more than 5 yuan a few days ago hasn't been changed. On August 23, the owner of a vegetable market in Xicheng District of Beijing said, "the price of green leafy vegetables is particularly high. '

The vendors' vegetables come from Xinfadi market, the largest vegetable wholesale market in Beijing.

According to the latest weekly data released by Xinfadi market, on August 17, the average price of vegetables in the market was 2.10 yuan / kg, up 7.14% on a weekly basis.

The price of food is rising all over the country!

According to the Ministry of agriculture and rural areas, vegetable prices across the country have risen for seven consecutive weeks since the beginning of July.

In the week beginning August 10, the Ministry of agriculture and rural areas monitored the prices of 19 kinds of vegetables in 286 wholesale markets of production and marketing areas in China. The results showed that the prices of cucumber, celery, green onion, Chinese cabbage and white radish rose significantly month on month, with the largest increase of cucumber, reaching 9.0%.

Why does the price of vegetables rise?

Some netizens said it had something to do with Shouguang's flood. Recently, Shouguang City was affected by the typhoon and heavy rain, many villages were flooded, farmland and vegetable greenhouses lost a lot, and the price of vegetables rose immediately.

So, is the rising price of vegetables in Beijing, Shandong and even the whole country really related to Shouguang flood?

Let's see where the vegetables in Xinfadi market, the main vegetable wholesale market in Beijing, come from.

Liu Tong, manager of Statistics Department of Beijing Xinfadi agricultural and sideline products wholesale market:

Last year, Hebei accounted for the highest proportion of vegetable sources in Xinfadi market, accounting for more than 20%, and Shandong for about 18%. At present, Hebei accounts for about 30% of the total, and Shandong Province is mainly composed of onion, ginger and garlic.

In other words, in Xinfadi wholesale market, the proportion of green leafy vegetables from Shandong is not high.

What about Shandong? Cui Xiaona, analyst of Zhuo Chuang information:

Shouguang Dashui will affect the price of vegetables in Shandong, but it is uncertain whether it will affect other provinces.

In this way, Shouguang flood is not the main cause. So, what's the real reason for the rise of the national vegetable price?

The answer given by the Ministry of agriculture and rural areas is:

High temperature and rainy weather affect vegetable supply.

How does it affect? Liu Tong, manager of Statistics Department of Xinfadi agricultural and sideline products wholesale market:

One is the impact of adverse weather conditions on vegetable harvest and picking in the current period, or the impact on transportation, which makes some vegetables unable to harvest due to the surrounding mud or stay in the transportation.

Second, the impact on the later stage, for example, when sowing, the weather is too dry or there is a lot of water in the field, and the temperature is too high or too low, which results in the delay of sowing time; the vegetables in the growing period are affected by high temperature, low temperature, insufficient light, strong wind and so on, and the vegetables in the harvesting period are soaked by water, smashed by hail, and roasted by high temperature, which will not only affect the current yield The supply will also affect the later supply, and even reduce the output of a single crop of vegetables, which may last for weeks or even 1-2 months. Cui Xiaona, an analyst with Zhuo Chuang information, believes that the vegetable supply will gradually increase after autumn, and the rise of vegetable prices will be restrained.
