BUDAPEST, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Hungarian agricultural producer prices rose by an annual 5.5 percent in September after a 3.4 percent increase in August, posting the fastest increase in nearly two years, data showed on Wednesday.
Vegetable, fruit and cereals prices rose by 4 percent from the previous year in September, the Central Statistics Office (KSH) said, bolstered by a 13-percent jump in wheat prices and a 68-percent surge in apple prices.
Livestock and related product prices rose by 7.9 percent year-on-year, with milk prices jumping by an annual 30 percent, the KSH said.
In the January-September period, agricultural producer prices were 3.4 percent higher year-on-year, driven by an 11-percent increase in livestock and related product prices. (Reporting by Gergely Szakacs)
