Continued disruption affecting Agriculture

The progressive consolidation of the smaller farms, the growing vertical integration of private companies in certain chains and the relative weight of farm cooperatives, is the beginning of a disruptive trend that challenges the input and processing industry. With this incipient equalization of forces, industrial companies that do not anticipate and adjust their business strategies could lose volume and/or fall into a pricing war that impacts their profitability. In the United States, the 2017 agricultural…

Latin America and Free Trade Score a Big Win

A trade pact between the European Union and Mercosur opens doors on both sides of the Atlantic. Argentina’s foreign minister fought back tears. President Maurico Macri called it “the most important agreement ever signed in our history.” Latin America’s biggest economy would soon be “reborn,” predicted a top aide to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who likewise heralded the “great day.” The June 28 deal between the European Union and Mercosur was a breakthrough. Who knew…

Argentina and Brazil look more promising

Argentina’s Merval and Brazil’s Bovespa were Latin America’s standout equity indices this quarter. In Argentina investors are encouraged by both the nascent economic recovery and President’s Macri’s improving standing in the polls ahead of October’s presidential election. In Brazil it appears that momentum has finally swung behind pension reform, which should improve public finances.

Latin America holds 42% of the world’s agriculture expansion potential

Foreign Farm Investors in Brazil sow seeds of openness

On the high plains around the town of Luiz Eduardo Magalhães in central Brazil, it is easy to feel dwarfed by the landscape. Fields of soya, maize and cotton stretch to the horizon under immense blue skies, only the occasional tree, silo or patch of scrubby cerrado woodland giving any sense of scale. Twin-wagoned lorries are laden with soya thunder along the highways. Away from the main roads, human beings are a rarity, glimpsed only in the cabins of combine harvesters or, in the late afternoon as the air…

Resources (particularly land and water) are limited and consumer behaviour is changing. Food producers cannot ignore these factors and need to address whether they are supplying what the consumer wants, at the right price, at a sustainable cost and to the right location. Agriculture sustainability…

Which countries are benefiting from the trade war?

Due to a diversion in trade flows, Vietnam has so far emerged as the largest beneficiary of the Sino-U.S. trade war, gaining an estimated 7.9% of its gross domestic product from the new business, according to Nomura. “As tit-for-tat tariff hikes between the U.S. and China increase, so does the cost of importing from each other,” the economists wrote in a report.

Brazil grows as an agricultural powerhouse

A good relationship by farmers with the new government of Jair Bolsonaro which focuses on business plus a strong commitment to the incorporation of technology to improve agricultural results should make for a happy relationship.

A distance where…
