  • Latin America’s Agricultural Challenges | BizNews
    economy on Latin American commodity producers should not be underestimated Take Brazil where 25 of sugar mills are requesting relief from unpaid bills and debt With excess capacity and a 25 drop in demand from China insolvent mills are pumping out more sugar causing a further decline in prices Only big diversified mills close to ports and owned by large parent companies are doing well Looming large in the background is another serious challenge to the agricultural sector the threat of climate change Latin America and the Caribbean face annual damages in the order of 100 billion by 2050 including a loss of net agricultural exports in the region between 30 billion and 52 billion A number of climatologists predict 90 of the land could be subjected to heat events including extreme droughts in the Amazon Basin Ecological changes could endanger up to 70 of Brazil s soybeans and 45 of Mexico s corn Bleak though this scenario may appear all is not hopeless While most observers are focusing on the severe challenges to the agricultural sector below the radar screen there are major positive changes that are positively impacting many of the 15 million farms and more than 100 000 agricultural related industries The driver is innovation The production transformation and marketing of agricultural products are continually improving due to enhanced coordination in supply chains Buyer supplier relationships and linkages between growers processors distributors marketers and exporters are achieving ever higher levels of efficiency Firms such as Cargill Bunge Coamo Ledesman Grupo Los Grobo JBS and BRF are agricultural powerhouses that are capable of weathering the current storm of a slowdown in demand and disrupting markets through cutting edge changes in productivity efficiency and quality Innovative methods and technologies are proliferating throughout commodity dependent economies For example the Brazilian firm Enalta has pioneered precision farming whereby sensors are installed in farm machinery to control planting and fertilizer use thereby increasing productivity New techniques and technology are also being used to bring formerly unusable and barren lands into productivity and the continuing Green Revolution as well as hybrid and disease resistant seeds are bringing significant benefits to producers and consumers alike Finally the import demand for more profitable high end products including organic such as endive bok choy artichokes tropical fruits and mini vegetables will continue unabated and at a faster pace all good news for the Latin American farm and agribusiness sectors To be sure governments in commodity dependent nations in the region are committed to supporting their agricultural sector however they are misguided in putting most of their emphasis on traditional export and subsistence crops In reality it is the private sector that has been in the vanguard of introducing processing and marketing high value agriculture while working in partnership very often with governmental research academic and non governmental organizations such as IICA Inter American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture Should Latin America continue to put all its eggs in the commodity basket hoping for a return of
