Agricultural Land Investment in Ukraine – Projected returns in excess of 400% over five years!
Investment Opportunity – Entry Level $5,350
Demand for agricultural land is at a record high
Demand in agricultural land has increased as a result of the growth in the world’s population (there are approximately 150 more mouths to feed every minute).
Add this to the desire for more land to produce bio fuels, and demand for soft commodities is higher than ever before.
Grain production is at a record low
However, supply remains stagnant. Production of grains is at a historical 30 year-low, and yet consumption continues to grow, hitting a record high of 35 million tonnes in 2008.
As a result, a significant gap between supply and demand has emerged. This gap in the market has attracted institutional funds who have poured £8 billion into agricultural land during the last 18 months, despite the economic downturn.
The global wheat price reached a massive US$247 on 10th June 2009, and is projected to be US$270 per tonne by May 2011.
