    Published: 17-Sep-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 112
    BMI View: Overall, the long-term outlook for the Mexican agriculture sector looks less optimistic than previous years. Consumer demand growth is largely slowing, particularly in key areas like sugar and corn, where per capita consumption is already high. Competitiveness is also an issue, particularly in the grains and livestock sector. Although we forecast a rebound in production for key sectors like corn and meat, we have a largely subdued long-term production outlook for these sectors, as chea......

    Published: 10-Sep-2014        Price: US $4650 Onwards        Pages: 198
    The need for feed testing emerged due to the occurrence of several diseases in animals due to the consumption of contaminated compound feed. Industrialization has also led to the contamination of feed ingredients such as corn, maize, and other grains, which are cultivated in land that is exposed to contamination. The regulatory bodies such as FDA, FAO, EUROPA, and USDA have made mandatory regulations for the testing of feed ingredients before they are marketed. The report includes the market ......

    Published: 27-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 83
    BMI View: We hold a cautious outlook towards the Bangladesh agriculture sector. The latest finding of high levels of toxic substances in poultry feed bring much cause for concern has it reflects on the low food safety standards employed by the country, even in the country's largest agriculture sector. Indeed, structural problems still plague the industry. In the medium term for example, the frequent occurrences of strikes, or hartals and road blockages will keep our optimism for the industry at ......
  • South West Africa Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 27-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 84
    BMI View: We expect food security in South West Africa to improve over the short term, as we expect higher corn production from Zambia in 2014/15. Over the medium term, we see downside risks to corn production in the region owing to new reforms introduced in Zambia that aim to reduce farm subsidies. Although this will help to improve the country's current account balance, it may lead to deteriorating food security across the region as farmers respond to lower prices. Even with reduced production......

    BMI View: Thailand will maintain its status as a key Asian agricultural provider in the coming years, as the sector benefits from strong export opportunities and government support as well as an efficient foodproducing industry. The sugar and livestock sectors are especially promising; however, the government's interference in the market, especially in the rice sector, will hinder the competitiveness of Thailand's production relative to its Asian rivals. Thailand will remain a key rice exporter ......
  • Uganda Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 27-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 84
    BMI View: We see potential for output growth in corn and coffee, two of the main crops in Uganda. For coffee, we see Uganda as an East African leader in terms of exports, largely owing to government support for the sector, particularly new disease-resistant trees. Moreover, coffee prices are higher year-on-year, meaning farmers will be able to invest in their crops. We expect Uganda to remain a net corn exporter in the coming years, although most of its corn will be shipped regionally. The count......
