Agricultural Commodities Price Outlook
Agricultural prices trend lower in June
Agricultural prices declined 1.7% month-on-month in June, after rising 6.9% in May, marking the first fall in prices since March.
June’s overall drop was driven by falling prices for corn, wheat, soybeans and palm oil. A stronger U.S. dollar and improving supply dynamics weighed on corn and wheat prices. Moreover, prices for soybeans—which are used as pig feed—dropped at the quickest rate in almost three years as China announced plans to ease soybean imports in an attempt to bolster domestic pork prices. Prices for pork have been down roughly 50% in China in recent weeks, which has forced farmers to curb output to avoid selling at a loss. However, coffee prices increased robustly in June due to some lingering supply concerns following protests in Colombia back in May, which halted exports.
