Argentina has a leading position in the production and export of agricultural commodities, ranking among the world’s ten biggest producers of soybean, maize, wheat, beef and poultry meat. The agriculture sector plays a major role in Argentina’s economy, accounting for 6.1% of GDP, 48.1% of national exports and 5.6% of formal employment in 2018. During the year, agricultural exports fell by 3.4% y/y. This was mainly due to a prolonged drought in the 2017/2018 crop year that impaired local output, coupled with the reinstatement of export tariffs on agricultural products in September 2018. The latter measure is aimed at reducing the fiscal deficit in a scenario of deepening economic recession and growing investor concerns about the country’s capacity to repay its debts. A potential change in administration after the October 2019 elections, and a return to state interventionism, have further increased uncertainty around the development of the agriculture sector.
