The total amount of farmland in the world is finite and the UN predicts that the global population will grow by around 50% in the first half of the present century. As living standards rise in emerging economies, demand for meat also rises, requiring greater amounts of land to provide animal feed. So crop prices along with the cost and rents of farmland will inevitably rise. As the worlds population passes 7billion, with a total population of 9billion forecast by 2040, increasing demand for food and grain is driving the values and rents of productive farmland higher. This investment is an opportunity to benefit by owning productive Sub Saharan African land.
The importance of investing in this sector cannot be overemphasized. Apart from the economic, social and cultural gains, this is one of the very few powerful investments and also one of the oldest investments known to man.
In this age of global uncertainty in the area of food producing and wealth preservation, productive farmland in Nigeria and Sub Saharan Africa has been placed into the spotlight by “guru investors,” wealth management funds, growing mega agri-industries, wealthy individuals, and especially, food insecure nations like China & India.
If ownership of the farmland of a nation doesn’t define an investor, then what does? Why are the deals popular? The same reason any deal is popular. There is strong demand and there are willing suppliers. Opportunism, if you will.
Sub Saharan Africa contains some of the finest land for arable farming in the world. It has abundant and reliable rainfall; its warm and has rich fertile soil. In this region two harvests can be achieved every 12-14 months, so yields are high. The cost of production in this region is among the cheapest in the world. The ease of doing business with the international market is even easier, as various governments in the region set incentives to specifically promote this industry.
Nigeria and most countries in Sub Saharan Africa are well-established agricultural exporters. Currently Nigeria is one of the highest exporters of cocoa in the world. Mega infrastructures are being built in order to have the scale for export, and many countries rely very heavily on its agricultural exports to feed their populaces. More recently, countries like China, India and South Korea have acquired vast fertile land in the region for the cultivation of cassava, peppermint, honey, sunflower seeds, soybeans, lemons and limes, pears, indigenous cattle meat, indigenous chicken meat, artichokes, tobacco, maize, grapes, sorghum, tea, sugar cane, linseed, game meat, string beans, flax fiber, grapefruit, palm oil, millet, cocoa also rubber, groundnut, cotton, Cashew nut, coffee, gum Arabic, onion and wheat.
