Tainted harvest: Large drops in fertilizer and feed prices have caused significant revenue declines


Farm Supplies Wholesaling in the US
Over the five years to 2017, the financial performance of the Farm Supplies Wholesaling industry has been affected by unpredictable feed and fertilizer prices. While rapid rises in the cost of important industry products led to sharp revenue increases in 2012, a series of bumper crops and the boom in fracking have led both feed and oil prices to fall in recent years.

Overall, these countervailing trends have led the industry to decline over the five years to 2017. The next five years have the potential to radically change the industry.

Uncertainty surrounding the development of genetically modified (GM) crops will likely have a turbulent effect on seed sales as prices ease. Some farmers will choose to grow their produce organically, without the presence of altered genes or agricultural chemicals, which will decrease demand for farm supplies.

This industry distributes a range of manufactured and other goods to crop and livestock farmers. A wholesaler may have exclusive distributorship to sell a particular brand within a specified territory, but most often they will sell such products in competition with other wholesalers.
