Dan Basse Addresses Cereals 2012, Lincolnshire, UK.

In an exciting first day at Cereals 2012 the event welcomed Dan Basse, President of AgResource Company. In a talk hosted by Agri Intelligence, the leading commentator and adviser to the UK and Chinese governments addressed Cereal 2012 visitors on World Food Supply and Demand.

His talk covered global crop marketing prospects saying that the key factors driving prices for the foreseeable future would be a combination of weather (in terms of drought and moisture stress in key production regions), biofuels and their demand for agrimony-based feedstocks and South East Asia and in particular China.

He focused more of his comments around wheat supply and demand taking in corn and soybean production towards suggestion of the current volatile period for grain prices and a bullish period ahead for wheat in particular.

The Ag President stated that two-thirds of a cereal farmer’s net revenue in the USA now arises from marketing activities. Based on his calculations he also mentioned, that GM technology in grain production had not delivered any corresponding increases in yields, however they had taken some of the volatility out of seasonal variation in output.

Mr Basse also took time to visit the IMD stand and meet our directors who were pleased to welcome him to IMD and discuss international milling. He will return to his home town Chicago, USA, having no doubt enjoyed his time at Cereals 2012 and even the UK weather!
