Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/20/2014 -- With a deteriorating economic environment , the Argentine grain sector will continued play centre stage over the medium term. With foreign reserves under pressure, grain exports (particularly soybean) will remain vital , but there is increasing evidence of hoarding, which could lead to clashes with the government over policy . Nonetheless, s oybean will remain the pre-eminent crop in Argentina over the long term, and we expect the poultry production to show the most promise within the livestock complex. We see potential for a mild rebound in beef production, as sector fundamentals remain challenging despite a significant decrease in grain prices. The country's dairy sector shows relative promise, due to relatively high retail dairy prices and investment into the sector.

Key Trends

- Corn production growth to 2017/18: 3% to 25.7mn tonnes. Our revised growth projections stem from lower average corn prices in coming years along with more substitution to soybean plantings.

- Soybean production growth to 2017/18: 5% to 52.7mn tonnes. Growth will come from increasing export demand for soybeans along with more value-added products such as soybean oil. Soybean crops are also generally less capital-intensive than corn crops due to lower input costs.

- Poultry production growth to 2017/18: 16% to 2.3mn tonnes. Most production growth will come from improving trade demand, as we see comparatively subdued growth in the domestic market.

- 2014 real GDP growth: 0.4% year-on-year (down from 2.9% in 2013; predicted to average 3.5% from 2014 until 2018).

- Consumer price index (end of period): 32% y-o-y in 2014 (up from 10.6% in 2013).
