Agriculture is one of the few safe havens for investors looking for capital growth in 2014. According to a report by Frontier Market Network, agriculture is a true investment opportunity.
The report says that at present, interest rates are at a 36-year low and are expected to remain low over the next few years, creating the ideal opportunity for capital investment to gain economies of scale and/or to improve productivity.
In general, agriculture is doing well. Property prices are expected to continue to grow by at least 10% per annum due to the profitability of the agricultural industry, and due to external investment from lifestyle buyers. China, Brazil and South Africa will continue to drive investment in Africa, Frontier Market Network says.
