What’s driving agriculture prices?

Major global supply risks continue to be seen far in advance by Refinitiv.

In 2021 and early 2022, the WAOB (World Agricultural Outlook Board) made several significant moves that shocked the market, resulting in major price movements. Refinitiv’s Agriculture Research team and Refinitiv’s clients were well prepared, given the long-range forecasts and viewpoints on crop production.

The complexities of socio-economic conditions, crop rotations, and uncertain weather affecting planting, growing and harvesting makes accurate forecasting a continual challenge.  Our team focuses on trends and conditions affecting corn, soybeans, wheat, rapeseed, palm oil, sugarbeet and sugarcane over the major crop producing regions, including South America, North America, Europe, Black Sea region, and Asia.

Our methodology blends decades-long historical data (weather and satellite imagery data, economic data, and area/yield/production data) with weather forecast data to produce objective yield and production estimates at least every two weeks on most crops the team covers.  Direct engagement with market participants, via calls to grain elevators and fieldwork, also play a critical role.

Weather maps highlight future risks on crops from temperatures or precipitation anomalies across key production areas all over the world. Maps like these help our meteorologists and you stay ahead of weather risks that could impact the markets you follow.
