BMI View: Our outlook for Venezuela''s agricultural sector is cautious given the country''s uncertain political and economic outlook. The country has significant growth potential, but the government''s policies of expropriation have seen production of key crops decline and a growing reliance on imports. Although the poultry section, for example, is well integrated, arable production and cash crops such as cocoa or coffee have been poorly managed. Following the death of president Hugo Chávez, we anticipate a new presidential election within months and believe that interim president Nicolás Maduro of the ruling Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela will win and will continue the interventionist policies of Chávez''s era.

However, we believe the pace of reforms may be more moderate and see significant potential for economic growth over our forecast period. This will, however, be dependent on the improvement of infrastructure and the adoption of more market-friendly policies.

Key Forecasts


  • Corn production growth to 2017: 45.7% to 2.04mn tonnes. Despite ongoing challenges including a lack of fertiliser and low profitability, we believe that corn output will expand strongly on the low 2012 levels.

  • Coffee consumption growth to 2017: 4.7% to 1.38mn bags. After surging by 48.3% from 2007-2012 owing to a steep rise in imports, our demand forecast for the coming five years is more moderate.

    In March 2012, corn price has enjoyed a slight uptrend thanks to some governmental support measures and the fact that farmers were still reluctant to sell their corn. However, the price may fall back in the near future, because corn's demand will be gloomy while its supply may be released intensively. In addition, CCM International has begun to publish reports about the development of some corn products in 2011, some of which enjoyed good development, such as PLA, MSG, and L-phe. Bu......

    BMI View: Severe droughts in Spain's main growing regions in recent months have severely affected grain crops during plantings. As a result, we have revised down our forecasts for wheat, corn and barley production for 2012/13. We believe dry conditions could also affect the livestock and dairy industries via herd growth in pasture lands, and therefore meat and dairy production. These dynamics are likely to be aggravated a continued credit tightening in Spain, which will make it difficult for far......

    BMI View: The vital US grains sector is expected to rebound in the 2012/13 season as soil conditions improve and high prices result in record plantings. The country's livestock sector (particularly beef) is likely to see more subdued growth, largely because inventory levels are lower. Given that cattle and lean hog prices remain high, we expect production to increase over our forecast period. As always, production growth will be dictated to a large extent by export demand, as aside from poultry,......

    BMI View: The Ethiopian grain crop as a whole should register slightly lower production for the 2011/12 season. Despite good rains towards the rest of the 2011, the important 'belg' rains at the start of 2012 arrived late, leading to delays in some plantings and resulting in a reduced corn crop. Overall, however, the country's food security situation is relatively stable, with local prices well below 2011 peaks in most regions. Overall, we expect the agriculture sector to remain highly fragmente......
