OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2018-2027

Key messages

  • With strong supplies, ample stocks and weakening demand growth, real prices are expected to decline 
  • Global food demand follows population growth as per-capita consumption of many food items levels off
  • Growth in crop and livestock production based mainly on intensification and efficiency gains
  • Imports of basic foods expanding most in countries with rapid population growth
