RaboResearch Publishes Q1 North American Agribusiness Review

Rabobank forecasts market trends and economic conditions driving agriculture in Q1 2024

CHESTERFIELD, MO (February 22, 2024) – Rabobank’s RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness (F&A) team in North America announced today the publication of the North American Agribusiness Review, a report which includes an analysis and summary of market conditions and trends across North American agriculture issued every other month.

The North American Agribusiness Review is a bi-monthly update featuring market outlooks and key insights in a variety of agriculture sectors, including everything from grains and oilseeds to beer and wine. The RaboResearch North American team consists of 20 analysts who monitor and evaluate the market events that affect food and agriculture to help clients navigate the ever-changing sector landscape. In this month’s publication, the team provides an overview of what developments to watch in the upcoming months in North America, including inflation, supply chain headwinds and pricing.

“On the consumer side, we continue to see sticky inflation, particularly in services. As planting season approaches, producers are facing a potential shift in global weather patterns and continue to experience market volatility driven by global events. In the Review, the RaboResearch team discerns key insights into agricultural markets and conducts an analysis of the factors that drive sectors like wheat, dairy, cattle and other key commodities’ success or failure,” said Roland Fumasi, Head of RaboResearch North America. “To support our North American clients across the entire food value chain, our team of research analysts collects information and spots opportunities that influence agribusiness’ business strategies in ultimately feeding the world.”

Along with the North American Agribusiness Review, Rabo AgriFinance clients have exclusive access to a range of other RaboResearch reports throughout the year, plus webinars and client events featuring RaboResearch analysis. RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness attracts both seasoned, talented professionals with specific, specialized expertise in food & agribusiness, as well as ambitious interns who help to bring energy and fresh ideas to the team. Rabobank is committed to a culture where diversity and inclusion are valued, respected and encouraged. Learn more about how to join one of the world’s leading food and agribusiness teams here.
