BMI View: We continue to retain our generally positive and optimistic outlook for the German agric u ltural sector in our Q2 2016 report update. We have made some minor revisions in our Q2 2016 update , but our core view remains unchanged. We believe the German agricultural system benefits from high levels of competitiveness, strong infrastructure and a very good farming knowhow. Grains, dairy and sugar will all stand to benefit this year and beyond. In the livestock sector, pork producers will be under pressure due to strained relations with Russia. Sugar and milk production will expand due to the removal of quotas in the years to come.

Key Forecasts

  • Corn consumption will grow by a healthy 3.5% in 2015/16 to reach 1.069mn tonnes.

  • Poultry production will grow by 2.2% in 2015/16 to reach 1.6mn tonnes.

  • We are estimating wheat production to decline by -2.4% in 2015/16 to reach 25.7mn tonnes, whereas sugar will grow by 5.0% to reach 27.5mn tonnes.

Industry Outlook

In March 2015, the EU put an end to its 30 year old milk quota. Milk quotas were introduced to ensure that oversupply of milk did not emerge from the EU. With the abolition, strong milk producers such as Germany are free to produce high amounts of milk with strong levels of efficiency and agricultural effectiveness to capitalize on the global demand for milk. We suspect that the German milk farmers will welcome this opportunity to produce high amount of milk and exploit their comparative advantage while looking to find international markets for their dairy produce.
