Mexico Agribusiness Outlook 2014
Mexico’s economic growth is gradually improving, but food consumption remains vulnerable to income and price effects, according to a report from Rabobank – Mexico Agribusiness Outlook 2014: A positive year but full of challenges. The Mexican economy is expected to recover gradually in 2014, after a slow 2013, with Rabobank forecasting 2.9% growth, mostly occurring during the second half of the year.
However, sector-specific challenges will continue to affect agribusiness. Grain and oilseed production is expected to be driven by declining prices and margins. Animal and meat prices and margins are expected to increase, although disease is expected to threaten both hog and poultry production, while the sugar and beverages sectors are expected to face a difficult year.

Soil nutrient balances UK provisional estimates for 2012
Soil nutrient balances provide a method for estimating the annual nutrient loadings of nitrogen and phosphorus to agricultural soils. They give an indication of the potential risk associated with losses of nutrients to the environment; losses which can impact on air and water quality and on climate change. The nutrient balances are used as a high level indicator of farming’s pressure on the environment and of how that pressure is changing over time. The balances do not estimate the actual losses of nutrients to the environment, but significant nutrient surpluses are directly linked with losses to the environment.

Animal health and welfare and food safety report published
The UK Government has published the first set of reports under the European Union Balance of Competences Review. These reports aim to deepen public understanding of the UK’s relationship with the EU.
The reports draw on evidence submitted to provide a wide ranging and balanced analysis of the EU’s ability to act, the impact that EU action has on the UK national interest and future challenges.
The Food Standards Agency and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs worked on the Animal Health and Welfare and Food Safety report. This covers food safety, including feed, food labelling and food compositional standards. A separate report on health, also published today, covers nutrition and related matters.
