Global Crop Outlook

Global Crop Outlook

The LMC Global Crop Outlook Report provides a clear and integrated view of the outlook for global agriculture to help guide your risk management and investment decisions. It covers all of the major crops – grains, oilseeds and sugar as well as each of the key regions around the world.

Key outputs will be forecasts to 2030 for crop:

  • Demand - food, feed and biofuels
  • Area, yield and production
  • Prices

Highlights of the report include:

  • Examination of the extent of the imbalance between demand and supply and how the conflicting demands placed on land are likely to be resolved.
  • Comparison of the economics of different crops and what they will mean for the choice of crops at new agricultural frontiers, and whether they are likely to lead the US to focus more heavily on corn (maize).
  • Analysis of how infrastructure constraints and the cost of transport will influence this choice of crop and the allocation of land.


The Main Report is divided into 6 sections:

Section 1: Global economic growth and its impact on the agricultural frontier

Section 2: The energy balance and the outlook for renewable fuels

Section 3: Infrastructure and its role in shaping the frontier

Section 4: Weather and crop yields

Section 5: The final agricultural frontier - corn versus soybeans

Section 6: The results: outlook for global agriculture - demand, supply and prices
