(DLG). DLG-Agrifuture Insights, the new DLG knowledge brand and platform for international trend analyses in the agricultural sector, supplies insights into the developments that are taking place in the world’s most important agricultural regions.

The focus is on animal husbandry and crop production, machinery and equipment, management, business climate and willingness to invest, the top five investments and prevailing policies. In this way DLG-Agrifuture Insights supports agribusiness companies in developing strategies on international markets. It gives farmer entrepreneurs important stimuli for developing their business. The basis for such monitoring around the world is a global panel made up of 2,000 future-oriented farmers, together with well-founded background research. Detailed information is available at: www.DLG.org/afi.
The international agricultural sector and its environment are changing rapidly. Technologies, markets and market relations, structures and processes are all in a state of transition. Demand is growing, digital networking is increasing, productivity must be boosted and conservation of resources improved. This new dynamism calls for ever faster strategy decisions in agribusiness and in farming. Precise information is necessary for this. Identifying changes at an early stage is a crucial success factor when it comes to adapting products and services to the changing needs of customers.
Knowledge advantage through first-rate information about the sector
DLG-Agrifuture Insights helps to identify current trends in machinery, equipment and management, to assess the business climate and business expectations, and to understand customer needs. The findings are thus an important decision-making support instrument. DLG-Agrifuture Insights examines the business environment and strategies in farming and agribusiness through a global panel of 2,000 leading farmers in 13 countries. To this end, surveys are conducted every February/March in the southern hemisphere and every August/September in the northern hemisphere, and the findings are supplemented by continuous background research and regular interviews with top decision-makers.
The reports by DLG-Agrifuture Insights identify current trends in machinery and equipment, business climate and investments in the key areas of arable farming, pig production and dairy farming. In addition, individual market research offerings can be developed for all interested subscribers.
