Agriculture and biofuels

Keep up with the latest news, price trends and forecasting of this vibrant and evolving market

In today’s constantly evolving agriculture commodity markets, continuous change is the new norm. Factors like severe weather, geopolitical tensions, domestic policies, biofuel demand, food security concerns and shifting trade flows keep impacting the market’s daily reality, resulting in high price volatility.

Staying informed about the market’s pulse and interpreting global supply and demand patterns or price signals has become more challenging yet crucial. Traditional methods like global price benchmarks are no longer sufficient. The market now relies on decentralized trade and agriculture price data, demanding an objective, locally immersed entity to provide more reliable information.
