As Perspectivas da Comercialização Agrícola do Ano 2008:Vozes das Zonas Rurais

This flash presents the perspectives of economic agents active in agricultural marketing of the 2007/2008 crop year compared to previous years. According to the agents interviewed, the current marketing season can be characterized by the following: 1) poor production and low yields for maize, beans, and other crops; 2) early start to the marketing season ; 3) very high prices at the beginning and increases during the period when prices usually decline; 4) strong competition between the formal and informal private sector agents particularly in areas with cell phone coverage; 5) active markets along the routes with best access and with good communication and transport networks; and 6) new economic agents (animal ration industry growing; new maize mills, new export alternatives, local purchase for food aid). With these observations, the agents predict high prices into the future.
