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..

    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 65
    BMI View: Over the longer term, we believe that the continued investment by the government to improve infrastructure - such as the improvement of irrigation systems - will help the country to turn away from its backward agrarian system and will yield results in terms of better-quality grains. We are especially upbeat in our outlook for grains and sugar production. Recent financial sanctions designed to pressure Tehran over its nuclear programme played havoc with Iran's ability to import goods, l......
  • Italy Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 114
    BMI View: Our outlook for the Italian agribusiness sector has turned more positive, as we believe the dairy and livestock industries will record fairly robust growth through to 2018/19 on the back of the removal of the EU's milk production quota in 2015, and the opportunity for Italy to develop its value-added exports We expect corn production to post the strongest growth out of the grains complex, largely due to base effects, as we believe wheat output will remain broadly flat due to little opp......

    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 107
    BMI View: The 2014/15 cocoa harvest looks set to suffer from erratic weather conditions and outbreaks of disease, preventing farmers from capitalising on high prices. Slumping earnings from oil should reinforce the government's determination to rebuild the segment into an export powerhouse, but may test its capacity to finance ongoing regeneration schemes. The more challenging economic climate is expected to make its effects felt in other segments in the agribusiness complex, particularly insofa......

    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 139
    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......
  • Zimbabwe Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 69
    BMI View: We expect Zimbabwe to remain a net corn importer over the longer term. Over the next five years, we expect production of the grain to demonstrate moderate growth, although this will partly be due to base effects, and production will remain well below the totals seen in the early 2000s. We are more optimistic regarding the sugar sector, where access to key markets and potential for productivity improvements will drive production over the long term. Although we forecast a domestic sugar ......

    Published: 18-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 111
    BMI View: Egypt is the world's largest wheat importer and will benefit from the recent sell-off in grain prices. The country is in the process of reforming its food subsidy programme in an effort to make the process more efficient. We believe that particularly good growth prospects exist in the country's livestock and dairy industries, as cattle herds continue to recover from a foot and mouth outbreak in 2012. These sectors will also benefit from lower global grain prices relative to the las......

    BMI View: We hold a positive view on the Philippines' agribusiness sector in the long term, given the potential for expansion into new sectors such as palm oil. Our outlook is especially positive for sugar production, and we also believe the livestock sector will continue to post healthy growth rates. The Philippines' vast consumption market, along with strong government support, will foster domestic and foreign investment and favour output expansion. However, backyard farming and infrastructure......

    BMI View: With wheat and dairy production falling consistently short of consumption, Algeria is a major importer of food products. However, the government's new emphasis on improving food self-sufficiency is helping the grains and dairy sectors to rebound. Increases in government support will be positive for productivity and product quality in the medium term. However, the country will remain a key importer of wheat and dairy products in the coming years. Algeria is increasingly expanding tradin......

There will be limited investment into the country over the coming quarters given the unstable situation, which will affect agricultural production over our forecast period. Particularly for the dairy and livestock industry, Russia's ban on imports from Ukraine will negatively weigh on production as Russia represents one of Ukraine's largest agricu......
