    BMI View: Although talks between EU representatives and their Russian counterparts are seeking to bring an end to the ban on agricultural exports to Russia, the recent ban on processed cheese from Poland indicates that individual member states may be left out in the cold. Our expectations for Polish livestock and dairy output remain low in the short term because of the loss of this important export market and a difficult operating climate more broadly, especially for dairy producers. The spike i......

    BMI View: We believe that any significant changes in the South Korean agricultural industry will be mostly public sector-led due to the strong unions behind the industry. Given the widespread changes which the government has been pursuing, notably the removal of trade barriers, we are optimistic about the long-term prospects of South Korea's agricultural sector. The Korea-US Free Trade Agreement (KORUS) and the recently-signed FTA with China should remove barriers to trade, and the government is......

    A hybrid seed or F1 or F1 hybrid is a first generation seed, which is produced by controlled cross pollination between different varieties of the same plant. The process of crossing seeds enables the production of desirable traits that are not possible through inbreeding between two plants. The subsequent seed produces plants with specific characteristics which are consistent from plant to plant. These seeds can adapt better to environmental stress, show greater resistance to diseases and pests,......

    BMI View: We believe that grains production growth over the next five years will slow relative to the preceding five. Nevertheless, we forecast strong grains production growth through to the end of our forecast period. We also see strong growth in the livestock and dairy sectors, as these will benefit from Russia's ban on imports of US products. We hold a more positive view on the sugar industry now than we have held in the past, due to reforms in the ethanol sector and the significant depreciat......

    BMI View: Dry weather has already affected the main corn harvest and also threatens cocoa output. We do not expect major falls in production, but even a slightly below average corn harvest could aggravate the growing food security crisis in the north of the country. Cocoa farmers, meanwhile, will be disappointed if poor yields prevent them from getting the full benefit of a peak in prices in 2015. The longer term picture for cocoa remains positive and it is encouraging for the profitability of t......

    BMI View: Colombia's agricultural sector will face a number of challenges in the medium term. Key export crops - such as coffee and cocoa - have underperformed in recent years owing to a lack of investment in infrastructure and outbreaks of disease. Although regeneration work is under way, it will take time to bear fruit. The strength of the Colombian peso against the US dollar is also posing challenges for the agribusiness sector, as the competitiveness of Colombia's exports is being eroded. Fi......

    BMI View: Greece's economic turmoil and the continued weak domestic consumption growth will continue to weigh on the country's livestock sector. That said, within the livestock sector, the poultry category is expected to fare better than the pork and beef sectors, as it is more affordable for consumers. We are bearish on the country's sugar production outlook over the coming years. The abolishment of the EU sugar quota in 2017 is likely to lead to further declines in sugar prices, weighing on pr......

    BMI View: The government's plans to diminish the once-powerful Central Union Agricultural Cooperative (JA-Zenchu)'s influence and clout in the industry by 2019 is a strong indication to us that much-needed structural reform of the agriculture industry is underway. Indeed, by 2019, the JA Zenchu is supposed to become a general incorporated association with co-ops having the option of engaging independent auditors instead of working with those associated to the JA Zenchu. By reducing the power of ......

Palm oil will remain the key agribusiness sector for Malaysia, although production growth will slow down in the coming years. The next challenge for the country resides in the upcoming economic integration within the ASEAN region. The ASEAN Economic Community will present some opportunities in terms of poultry exports for examp......
