New market study, "South Africa Agribusiness Report Q2 2016", has been published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Feb 21 2016

We continue to hold a mixed outlook for the South African agricultural market as a whole. Both corn and wheat will be hit by severe drought and the effects of El Ni n o , but we do expect grains to rebound over the course of our forecast period . Furthermore, livestock production and sugar consumption will both embark on a positive trajectory. Over the medium term, a weak rand , weather volatility and falling farm incomes will exert downward pressures on the market. However, economic growth , increasing demand and a higher population with mo re discretionary spending power will be boosts for growth.

Key Forecasts

Corn production will take another year of heavy losses in 2015/16 due to severe drought, declining by an additional 25.9% y-o-y to reach 8.0mn tonnes.

Sugar production will decline by 20.2% to reach 1.75mn tonnes in 2015/16, as El Nino and severe regional weather droughts hit output.

Poultry production will reach 1.3mn tonnes in 2015/16, representing a y-o-y increase of 1.2%.

Pork production will rise by 2.1% in 2016 to reach 245,000 tonnes, while consumption will see a rise to 306,000 tonnes.
