DLG-Agrifuture Insights supplies essential information for agribusiness and farmers from the world’s most important agricultural regions. Recent studies on Brazil, South Africa, Thailand and Zambia offer detailed information on investment plans in animal husbandry and crop production in these four countries.

International farmers' investment intentions differ from continent to continent and from region to region. A recent survey by DLG-Agrifuture Insights in four countries - Brazil, South Africa, Thailand and Zambia -  shows that Thailand’s farmers hold the top position in investing into modernising their farms and production systems.

In contrast, South African farmers reported to the Agrifuture surveyors that investments were being curbed owing to restricted bank loans and growing uncertainty of a land reform that had been announced by the Government. The DLG-Agrifuture survey was published in spring 2018 at the DLG-Agrifuture Insights website.

Brazil boosting the livestock sector to increase exports

In global terms, agriculture in Brazil is a powerhouse. For example, agricultural production has doubled since the 1990s and has even tripled in animal husbandry.

Growth in production is mainly driven by agricultural exports, which represent an important source of foreign currency income for the Brazilian economy.

According to the DLG-Agrifuture Insights survey, nearly 40 per cent of Brazilian farmers plan to invest in the next twelve months.
