BMI View: Growth in the Russian agricultural sector will remain weaker over the next few years relative to previous years as a result of the poor economic situation. A poorer fiscal outlook will subsequently reduce government support to key areas of the agricultural sector, namely the dairy industry and in subsidies for crop producers. That said, the country's ban on agricultural imports from certain countries will provide a boon to production over the coming months, as domestic producers take advantage of the lack of competitive imports. Grain production will decline considerably y ear -o n -y ear in 2015/16 due to much lower yields owing to a large rise in agricultural input costs.

Key BMI Forecasts
Wheat production growth 2013/14 to 2018/19: 14.7% to 59.8mn tonnes. Yield gains and better access to export markets in Asia will lead to wheat production growth after a large year-on-year (y-o-y) decline in the 2015/16 season.
Cheese consumption growth 2014 to 2019: 17.9% to 787,400 tonnes. Cheese demand will be considerably affected in the coming months owing to the country's agricultural imports ban, though will pick up following the end of the ban in August 2015.
Poultry production growth 2013/14 to 2018/19: 25.4% to 4.0mn tonnes. Poultry production growth will outperform that of both pork and beef as domestic consumption will be relatively higher. However, government subsidy schemes are likely to be postponed owing to fiscal constraints.
2015 real GDP contraction: 5.2% (compared to growth of 0.6% in 2014).
Consumer price inflation: 14.0% y-o-y average in 2015 (up from 7.8% y-o-y on average in 2014).
BMI universe agribusiness market value: -0.9% y-o-y to USD77.1bn in 2015/16, forecast to grow on average 1.2% annually between 2015/16 and 2018/19.
