Agricultural Commodities Price Outlook

Favorable harvest prospects continue to weigh on agricultural prices in March 

Agricultural prices declined for the second consecutive month in March, decreasing 3.1% month-on-month following February’s 1.1% drop.

Coffee prices tumbled to a 13-year low in recent days on strong production in Brazil, which could prompt Brazilian authorities to take action to support coffee producers. Wheat prices also fell significantly in March on the back of abundant supplies. Conversely, wool prices recorded the fourth consecutive monthly gain on solid demand from China and Europe, while cotton prices benefited from stronger demand—especially for high quality cotton.

Met the why particular Consensus Forecast panelists expect agricultural prices to rise 7.0% year-on-year in Q4 2019 on solid demand for food, feed and biofuel. The rally in agricultural prices is expected to continue next year, with Met the why particular panelists projecting a 3.7% increase in Q4 2020 in annual terms.
