The US agricultural sector will be happy to see the end of the 2012 calendar year: The combined production growth of the country’s major grains and animal products is expected to be the worst in two decades. We are somewhat optimistic for the 2013 season, as we anticipate a strong rebound in corn and soybean production. We also forecast growth in the poultry sector due to moderating corn prices. We are particularly bullish cotton due to a higher area planted. We expect the beef sector to be the laggard in the livestock complex, and see strong downside risks to the 2013/14 US wheat crop. Given that we forecast generally stable consumption growth, we expect the US to remain the world’s largest food exporter over the coming years.

Key Trends

  • Soybean production growth to 2016/17:

    27.4% to 105.7mn tonnes. This is mainly owing to the increase in poultry production over the long term. This will create production incentives by driving demand for soybean, which is used as feed. Furthermore, livestock production is still expanding globally, driving feed export demand.

  • Corn consumption growth to 2017:

    6.9% to 298.7mn tonnes. This will be driven by increases in ethanol production – though this growth will be less steep than in the past few years – and an increase in feed use in the later years of our forecast period as the livestock sector picks up. Base effects are a key factor why the growth rate is not higher.

  • Poultry production growth to 2016/17:

    20.1% to 23.1mn tonnes. The US is the world’s second largest poultry exporter behind Brazil. As such, increased global demand for poultry, particularly from emerging markets, is likely to serve as a powerful production incentive.

  • 2013 real GDP growth:

    2.1% year-on-year (y-o-y), down from 2.3% in 2012; predicted to average 2.2% from 2012 until 2017.

  • Consumer price inflation:

    2.2% ave in 2013, up from 1.8% in 2012.

Industry Outlook

We see potential for the 2012 US Farm Bill to be extended for several months, which has occurred with previous bills, but see little chance that the bill will expire outright. Food stamps were the largest single part of the 2008 farm bill, and this would continue if the current bill is implemented. When the 2008 bill was passed in June of that year, food stamps comprised two-thirds of the projected total five-year net outlay (US$284bn). If the current bill were extended, the US Congressional Budget Office forecasts that food stamps would comprise 78% of all spending (US$772bn) over 10 years. We will be watching the fortunes of the 2013/14 US wheat crop in the coming weeks, as soil conditions remained the poorest in almost 30 years as of early December 2012. As of late November, almost a quarter of all soil was rated in either ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’ condition. There is not a direct correlation between early-season soil conditions and harvest totals, but given that the US is the world’s largest wheat exporter, changes in US supply represent upside risks to prices in 2013, even though the global wheat market is one of the world’s most diversified. We continue to forecast a slight decrease in US wheat output to 58.5mn tonnes in 2013/14 as supply reverts to historical averages. We continue to forecast lower US beef production and consumption in 2013, as poor pasture conditions and high grain prices lead to record low cattle inventories. Feedlot operators have been particularly squeezed by the recent spike in grain prices and volatility in feeder cattle prices. The low inventories, in turn, have caused wholesale and retail beef prices to rise, leading to reduced consumption at a time when beef demand is slowing amid increasing health consciousness. We expect major beef producers in the US to continue underperforming the S&P500 over the next few months. We continue to expect lower beef production and consumption in the US in 2012/13, with beef production being constrained by cattle inventories that are at their lowest levels since 1960..

  • Mexico Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    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......
  • Bangladesh Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    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......
  • Thailand Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 27-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 143
    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......
  • Zimbabwe Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 27-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 73
    BMI View: Although we have revised up our corn production forecasts for the 2013/14 season, we remain relatively pessimistic over the long term. Indeed, even with the output upgrades, the US Department of Agriculture expects Zimbabwe to import a record amount of corn in 2013/14. Over the long term, we expect production of the grain to demonstrate moderate growth, although this will partly be due to base effects, and we see the country remaining a net importer over the long term. We are slightly ......

    Published: 27-Aug-2014        Price: US $2160 Onwards        Pages: 46
    Background: Animal husbandry has been developed from being a household sideline production to becoming the pillar industry in China's agriculture industry. On one hand, affected by the fast-growing chickens and H7N9 influenza events in 2013, most of these companies did not perform very well. Prices of animal husbandry products were very unstable. On the other hand, owing to the industrialization, the increasing demand for animal products and the increasing yield of animal husbandry year by year,......
  • Saudi Arabia Agribusiness Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 72
    BMI View: Saudi Arabia will increasingly be dependent on global grain supply, as the country has decided to phase out domestic grain production in a bid to preserve the country's water supply. The government has not abandoned its strategy of self-sufficiency in poultry and has been ramping up incentives to expand capacity production. This strategy has paid off, as the three major producers in the sector have all started heavy investment initiatives. We believe Saudi Arabia will find sufficient g......

    BMI View: We hold a positive view on the South African agricultural sector and see particular growth potential in the grain and livestock sectors. Both sectors' growth will be boosted by regional export demand. The sugar sector also presents interesting growth opportunities, mainly thanks to renewed investment and improved technologies. Overall, the country's grain and livestock producers have been hit by recent hikes in grain prices and subdued corn supply on the domestic market. Margins have p......
