Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2015 -- Bad weather right at the point of harvest has significantly reduced the prospects for the 2014/15 wheat crop. Quality has been affected and export earnings as well as volumes are likely to be compromised as a result. Other grains have fared better and we do not foresee any problems with local availability of animal feed. Poultry, pork and beef farmers continue to be among the biggest beneficiaries of the government's plans to modernise the agricultural sector and we see strong lon g - term growth potential for the livestock industry. The dairy segment will demand more significant structural reforms and substantial investment in processing and storage infrastructure for us to regard it with similar optimism.

Key Forecasts

- Wheat production growth to 2017/18: 43.4% to 14.1mn tonnes . This growth will be almost entirely due to base effects. Production will be held up by improving yields, as acreages are set to decline as subsidies incentivise sowings of other field crops and prices are expected to flatline.

- Milk consumption growth to 2018: 18.5% to 5.2mn tonnes. This will be a result of increased demand from a growing population, with manufacturers of flavoured milks likely to be among the main beneficiaries.

- 2015 real GDP growth: 5.0%, up from 4.3% in 2014; forecast to grow at an average rate of 5.3% from 2013 to 2018.

- 2015 average consumer price inflation: 8.1% year-on-year (y-o-y), down from 8.3% y-o-y in 2014.
