South Korea's producer prices edged up in December from the month before, mainly due to higher agricultural goods prices.
The Bank of Korea says its producer price index came to 103.71 in December, up point-three percent on-month.
The central bank said agricultural goods prices rose because of a decrease in supply.
Electricity, gas and water prices also crept up, contributing to an uptick in producer prices.
On-year, South Korea's overall producer prices in December rose point-seven percent.
