Agriculture producer prices climbed 38% y/y in June 2013, swinging from a 22.7% contraction the month before, the statistics office DoS said. In monthly terms, these prices jumped 26% (down 12.4% in May) due to unfavourable seasonal factors and strong local demand. Tomato prices jumped 141.3% y/y and 189.0% m/m in June. Potatoe prices fell 44.0% m/m helping cut the annual growth to 78% y/y from 196% in May.
