  • Turkey Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 97
    BMI View: We favour the sugar sector in Turkey because of the strong growth potential of the country's confectionery industry, and our belief that large changes to the country's sugar production quotas will occur in the coming years. We see upside potential in the livestock sector, as the government's supply of discounted credit has aided growth in recent years. However, we see little growth potential for the grain, dairy and rice sectors, as we believe the country's production growth in these s......
  • Ethiopia Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 84
    BMI View: Production prospects look broadly favourable for the Ethiopian agriculture sector over the medium term. This will largely be due to more investment in the sector, along with higher incomes contributing to consumption growth. We believe the sugar sector has the most potential, as investments in new sugar refineries will make sugar one of the few reliable agricultural exports over the forecast period. We see relatively pedestrian output growth for Ethiopia's coffee sector, but see upside......
  • Ukraine Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 98
    Despite ongoing tensions with Russia, Ukraine will see another strong grain harvest in 2014/15. In our view, ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine will pose downside risks to exports as we could see disruption in transportation for the crop. Also, we see downside risks to our production outlook for grain, livestock and dairy on the back of deteriorating credit conditions in the country. Key Forecasts ? Corn production growth 2012/13 to 2017/18: 39.0% to 29.1mn tonnes. We are turning more o......
  • France Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 93
    BMI View: We believe the grains sector in France will continue to outperform other agribusiness segments in terms of production growth. This will be reinforced by the ongoing reforms of Common Agricultural Policy subsidies, which are likely to have more of an effect on dairy and livestock farmers than grain farmers. Key Forecasts ? Wheat production growth to 2017/18: 15.2% to 41.5mn tonnes. We expect wheat to remain the most profitable crop in the country and the one most in demand for domestic ......
  • Ghana Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 94
    BMI View: The storm clouds which were gathering over the Ghanaian cocoa sector have been at least temporarily lifted by the news that the regulator COCOBOD will continue to offer support to the sector in collaboration with the government. The free inputs and better infrastructure promised would enable cocoa farmers to make the most of a seller's market of tight supplies and galloping demand. Similar support for corn growers will enable continued improvements in yield, admittedly from a very low ......
  • India Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 149
    BMI View: We hold a positive view on India's agribusiness sector, as the country will remain an agricultural powerhouse and is likely to maintain high levels of self-sufficiency for major food crops. Production growth of various commodities will be driven by strong government support and robust demand for manufactured foodstuffs. We see significant growth opportunities in sub-sectors such as dairy, coffee and livestock. However, India will be increasingly vulnerable to exceptional weather phenom......
  • Indonesia Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 166
    BMI View: Overall, we hold an optimistic outlook on Indonesia's agriculture sector and see significant growth opportunities in sub-sectors such as livestock, palm oil and cocoa. While we believe the government's goal to reach self-sufficiency in rice by 2015 is attainable, we are less confident about other commodities such as sugar and corn. We also highlight that the country's aim to become the second largest coffee producer in the world by 2015 is unrealistic. Much of our scepticism relates to......
  • Kenya Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 79
    BMI View: We expect to see a general stagnation in production for the 2014/15 season owing to erratic rains. This will contribute to rising imports and domestic food prices, which will lead to higher inflation. Over the long term, we believe Kenya's corn sector shows the most potential for growth, a function of corn prices remaining elevated by historical standards. However, the country will remain a large and growing importer due to strengthening demand and stagnating production. We continue to......
  • Pakistan Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 104
    BMI View: A strong rice harvest is expected for 2014/15 although the same is true for other major producers, leading to underwhelming prices for exporters. A similar situation obtains for sugar, albeit with more drastic consequences as millers claim they are unable to break even on the back of rock-bottom prices and have withheld payments from cane growers. Wheat production is expected to rebound from last year's rain-hit harvest and exports should exceed imports. A boost to domestic supply of t......
