The price fall of 3 staple food affecting agricultural inputs

Starting from this autumn, China’s food grain harvesting looks good except the dropped purchasing prices of 3 staple food grains – corn, wheat and rice, of which prices of corn and wheat have dropped considerably. The situation will result in reduced incomes of farmers from plantation, which will cause a loss of disposable income of nearly Yuan 100 billion, thus indirectly affecting agricultural inputs business, and land transfer is expected to be accelerated. When choosing agricultural inputs, farmers might be apt to purchase product of lower prices, which will be a good opportunity for e-commerce suppliers. The dropping of profitability of agricultural material industry may result in survival of good players and elimination of poor ones as well as to result in accelerated industry mergers.
