BEIJING - Prices of farm produce in China continued the upward trend last week, data from the Ministry of Commerce showed Tuesday.

From July 13 to 19, the overall price of farm produce rose 0.4 percent on a weekly basis, narrowing by 0.4 percentage points from the growth logged a week earlier.

In breakdown, the wholesale price of eggs edged up 3.2 percent, while that of beef increased by 0.3 percent.

The average wholesale price of 30 types of vegetables stayed flat from a week earlier, while that of six kinds of fruits fell 0.9 percent, the data showed.

Food accounts for about one-third of China's consumer price index, a main gauge of inflation.
