In the aftermath of torrential rains, prices of agricultural products are skyrocketing day by day.
The government has been prepared to prevent further disruptions in the supply and demand of agricultural products due to pest damage after the rain.
Reporter Yang Il-hyeok reports.
Nonsan, Chungcheongnam-do, one of the places hit by the water bomb this time, is considered the main growing area for lettuce.
Lettuce is a fresh vegetable, so it is difficult to import, and it takes more than 20 days to grow again.
It is said that it is difficult to avoid a direct hit from price hikes for the time being.
In fact, the wholesale price of green lettuce exceeded 90,000 won per 4kg온라인바카라.
Compared to a month ago, it jumped 4.7 times.
Cucumbers increased by 3.5 times and spinach by 3.1 times within a month.
Cabbage is also a concern.
There is a great concern that the harvest may deteriorate due to heavy rain in the highlands of Gangwon-do, where summer cabbage is grown.
I’m also concerned that frequent rains might bring about pests and affect the price.
[Jeong Hwang-geun / Minister of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (Last 20th): I’m just worried about soft rot, but as you can see now, farmers are actively jointly controlling it, so you don’t have to worry about cabbage for now.] The government has stockpiled 10,000 tons of spring cabbage and 6,000 tons of spring radish in case the harvest deteriorates due to abnormal weather such as torrential rain
If there is a sign of unstable supply and demand, we plan to immediately supply it to the market to induce price stability.
In addition, lettuce and spinach, whose prices have soared due to the torrential rains, are selected as discount items to help alleviate the price burden.
