Analyzing the Impact of Changes in Trade and Domestic Policies: The Case of the Soybean Complex

Yan Xia, Rafael Costa, Dwi Susanto,

Parr Rosson, and Flynn Adcock


Objective
Objective Policies: The Case of the Soybean Complex

  • Analyze and Quantify the Impacts of domestic and trade policy changes on the soybean complex. Three different policies, LDP in U.S., transportation costs in Brazil and export taxes in Argentina are considered.


Overview
Overview Policies: The Case of the Soybean Complex

  • Soybean Industry & international trade barriers

    • Cost Competitiveness

    • Government Policy

  • Methodology

  • Scenarios and Results

  • Conclusions


Soybean industry trade barriers
Soybean Industry & Trade Barriers Policies: The Case of the Soybean Complex

  • Cost Competitiveness

    • US has higher fixed costs but is more competitive in variable costs aspects

    • Brazil & Argentina have lower fixed costs & overall production costs

    • Inadequate transportation infrastructure in Brazil

Soybean industry trade barriers1
Soybean Industry & Trade Barriers Policies: The Case of the Soybean Complex

  • Government Policy

    • U.S. Farm Policy (DP, CCP, LDP)

      Loan rate: $5.00/bu 2002-2007

      $5.01/bu or $4.92/bu newly proposed

      – Argentina Export Tax

      Soybean 23.5%, Meal & oil 20%

      Soybean ↑27%, Meal & Oil ↑24%

      95% soybeans & products are exported


Soybean cost argentina vs u s

  • The difference between the internal price & international price force the soybean growers to be more efficient.

Cost ItemArgentina U.S.

Land Values $5,000/Ha $6,800/Ha

Rent $200/Ha $290/Ha

Operational Costs 600-800kg/Ha 935-985kg/Ha

Average Farm Price 2004/05 $4.70/bu $5.50/bu

    • Importers: EU, Asia (China & Japan), ROW

    • Linkage between soybean & joint products

      • Demand & Supply

    • Soybean export price determination

    • Trade restrictions & equilibrium conditions

Conclusions
Conclusions Policies: The Case of the Soybean Complex

  • U.S. becomes less competitive due to decrease in Loan Deficiency Payment rate

    • Higher U.S. soybean prices

    • Fewer soybeans are exported.

  • Transportation costs reduction will enhance Brazil’s competitiveness

    • Lower soybean export price

    • Higher soybean supply

  • The increase in export tax in Argentina

    • Further suppress soybean exports

    • Higher soymeal and oil exports


Conclusions ii
Conclusions II Policies: The Case of the Soybean Complex

  • If Argentina phase out the export tax

    • Fewer soybeans are retained domestically

    • More soybeans are exported

  • LDP rate reduction and changes in Brazil & Argentina happen simultaneously

    • U.S. suffers the greatest loss in competitiveness

    • Prices of soybean, soymeal and oil increase significantly; exports decrease

    • Brazil & Argentina gain market share


Conclusions iii
Conclusions III Policies: The Case of the Soybean Complex

  • If U.S. maintains LDP unchanged

    • Less than 1% increase in soybean supply

    • Prices of soymeal and oil remain stable

    • Asia experiences a large increase in soybean imports and decrease in soymeal & oil imports

    • EU increases soymeal & oil imports; its soybean demand remains stable
