Agricultural Commodities Price Outlook
Agricultural prices rise in August
Agricultural prices increased 1.5% month-on-month in August, rebounding from July’s 5.8% dive which had marked the largest decrease in prices since April 2020.
The recovery in August was spearheaded by accelerating price growth for sugar, cotton and wheat. Strong global demand and supply concerns kept cotton prices near all-time highs in August, while sugar and coffee prices jumped due to unfavorable weather conditions in major producer Brazil. Similarly, concerns over future supply boosted wheat prices in August, while prices for cocoa rebounded on stronger demand. In contrast, prices for both corn and soybeans contracted for the third consecutive month in August, with the latter feeling the brunt of a softening demand backdrop . This, coupled with another dip in rice prices—which have been contracting since February—cooled the overall upturn in the month.
