Why should I invest in farmland
If you are an investor or a short term long term, must be aware of the importance of real
estate and how meaningful it is to be in the long run.
Traditionally, investors waited for a long time to buy a property of cropland.
Many European investors waited, thought about it, and ultimately decided to invest in
the exact moment of 5-10 years ago and have obtained substantial gains today.
However, the situation has now changed, a greater number of people are interested in
As you know, the Chaco was and is one of the more accessible of the world and which
is excellent for livestock ed because their soils are rich in minerals. And eastern
agrologicamente excellent for the production of cereals and oilseed where excessively
high prices have experienced in the last three years.
Today the field of the western region is accessible, but the price increase within
decades. Then you will be happy for your sensible choice.
Many people wonder why they should invest in Paraguay, the main reason behind this is
the target market which is very attractive. Fields of the East and West Regions totaling
some 40 million hectares of these represent almost 70% to 80% of the arable land in
Paraguay. This shows why investors are choosing to Paraguay as the new place for
investment in farmland.
You can safely invest in farmland because a farm Chaco is a very stable and
conservative investment and future income generation will imminently profitable. It
also has protection against inflation. There are projects of meat processing industries
such as refrigerators, and facilities of the Mennonite colonies, Cooperatives and several
populated cities. Moreover, the price of each hectare is low, despite the recent increase.
Compared to other places in the prices of agricultural land, the Paraguay has annual
rainfall that meet the agronomic requirements, compared to Australia and Africa where
residual soils are selling and where no water or rain, Paraguay has one of the soil most
fertile in the world. Our Country, no restrictions on foreign sovereignty only by a
foreigner can not buy at 50 km from the border in a personal, so structured to make the
purchase with a corporation, therefore, you can buy a farm where want.
Earlier this decade, the main concerns were about the reconstruction and energy.
However, things have taken a different course and concern has shifted to food and
water. The cost of wheat, soybeans, corn, meat and other crops from the fields of
Paraguay are increasing, but offers the lowest prices of agricultural land in the whole of
South America. This makes the regions of Paraguay as attractive for investors from
around the world. Today investors can get better opportunities to buy farmland in
Paraguay, no worries.
On average, a farm in the Chaco is sold for around U.S. $ 350 - U.S. $ 700 per hectare.
Agricultural land will increase in the coming years around about U.S. $ 40 per hectare
will get a better picture of the rates when comparing prices with those of other
countries. Therefore, the benefit to agricultural investments in Paraguay is evident and
now is the time.
If you make investments in farmland, then you have nothing to lose. In fact, you will
make a lot of profit in the future with your new purchase because the price of land in the
Chaco up and stay up, because the borders will extend to agricultural livestock farm
because that's the trend observed and is reflected beef exports.

Farmland is an attractive long-term investment that offers current income and capital
appreciation, as a hedge against inflation and diversification favorable and is negatively
correlated with traditional asset classes. With the development of capitalism, is
constantly increasing the price of land, which is due, firstly, to the tendency of the rate
of interest and on the other hand, the increase in land rent in all respects . The income
growth, in turn, is conditioned by the growing demand for agricultural products and the
expansion of cultivated land surfaces. The rising price of land means that productive
consumption is subtracted growing part of goodwill, some landlords do not use it
productively. In fact, since the end of World War farmland in the United States has
experienced a steady increase in value every year, but four (1983, '85-'87). Most
investors have experienced painful falls in the value of their portfolios lately, but those
who have an assignment on agricultural lands benefited from lower volatility and
positive returns to offset losses from other asset classes.

Farmland Partners SA and the benefits of our investment strategy.
RATIONALE FOR INVESTING
Lands revenues have consistently produced agricultural product sales between 15% and
25%, depending on the climate and the international prices of commodities, as well as
An important component of the total return on farmland is capital appreciation. As the
demand for agricultural products increases and the supply of arable land suitable for
agriculture decreases, there is a significant increase in the value of agricultural land.
The land has a positive correlation with inflation and is considered a classic hedge
against inflation. In fact, many investors see as more favorable than other tangible assets
like gold, because farmland produce a positive cash flow while protecting the harmful
effects of inflation.
The Farmland negatively correlated with traditional asset classes like stocks and bonds,
and is just a little correlated with commercial real estate. This provides the stability of
the portfolio during volatile markets while improving risk-adjusted return of a portfolio.
It predicts good benefits in land investment, macroeconomic fundamentals are favorable
and are about to increase farmland values in the coming years.
The demand for food
The world population continues to grow and is projected to increase from the current
6.7 billion to more than 9 billion in 2040. This increase in population will require
increasingagricultural production for food bastecer. In addition, as incomes rise in
emerging markets with large populations, there will be greater demand for a better diet
which usually means more meat. The raw meat requires more grain compared to grain
for direct human consumption. For example, one pound of beef requires seven pounds
ofgrain feedstock and a pound of chicken will need two pounds of grain.
The demand for alternative energy
Increasing awareness of global warming has led to an increased demand for alternative
energy sources, and the owners of agricultural land are in a unique position to benefit
from this development. Currently, the raw material for biofuels in the United States is
corn and soybeans for ethanol biodiesel production. The efficiency of corn-based
ethanol is improving exponentially as revealed in a recent study published in the Journal
of Industrial Ecology. Over time, the technology will allow the addition of cellulosic
biofuels made from millet, corn stalks or other fibrous raw food, but still needed
farmland and farmers to plant, maintain and harvest alternative crops. Moreover, the
recent interest in wind energy will lead to increased demand for land to locate wind
The supply of arable land, able to provide all the optimal factors for agricultural crops is
limited, and in Paraguay supply is shrinking. In addition, global supplies of fresh water
for agricultural production are being rapidly depleted. The technological advances that
allow for higher yield of existing farmland helps the imbalance between supply, but
these advances also increase income per acre of existing farmland and therefore increase
Paraguay Farmland Partners SA
Aims to provide the main service management and asset management purchase
agricultural investors who otherwise would not have access to this profitable asset class
is correlated with traditional assets. Paraguay Chaco Farmland Partners SA believes that
the best form of investment is through direct purchase by the property investor in
Paraguay, so to have a portfolio, which also allows investors to participate in land
Paraguay Farmland Partners SA believes that the purchase decision is critical and seeks
to identify undervalued properties that generate positive cash flows. The risk is reduced
when a property is bought at the right price with multiple sources of return. Paraguay
Farmland Partners SA also seeks to improve their farms thereby increasing the long
term value of the property and requires a higher rent. Paraguay Farmland Partners SA
actively manages each property, select a farmer proven its existing network of preferred
producers who want to expand as Paraguay Farmland Partners SA acquire more
farmland for their investors. The result is a partnership that benefits both the owner /
investor and producer.
Paraguay Farmland Partners SA see a greater role for the land asset in the investment
portfolios of both individual and institutional. Revenues from production or lease lands
is particularly attractive because it provides annual income. The Farmland will benefit
from increased demand for grain, environmental demand of alternative energy and the
impact of globalization. The factors that will benefit farmland investments are:
- Global Demography food demand increases
- The increasing demand for protein by the Asian middle class
- Alternative Energy demand for ethanol, biodiesel and wind
- The decrease in the global supply of farmland
- Paraguay has a comparative advantage in agriculture
- Agriculture / Land correlated with stocks and bonds.

VARIOUS INVESTORS IN A S.A. (Inc. Plc)
In the event that individual investors do not have enough capital to buy a farm
Farmland Partners SA Paraguay has as collective investment strategy through
Anónimas Company, where different investors contribute capital to the SA as
shareholders, and once that integrates the necessary capital for the purchase of an estate,
investment takes shape
Each investor shares in the revenue generated by these exploitations, and the
appreciation of the properties "value proportional to the amount of their capital
investment. The benefit to investors is that they share the benefits of a diversified
portfolio managed farmland provides unbiased high current income, significant growth
and low correlation to traditional asset classes.
Apart from financial models, how to evaluate the quality of a land?
We look at the soil types, soil slope, height, percentage of acres arable and design fields.
We try to maximize acres arable and buy farms with minimum slope because these
issues are incorrigible. However, we advise purchasing farms in different soil types and
elevation, as they can still be productive farms, is just a matter of the price you will pay
to buy and what to produce income.
How do you determine the quality of soil, crop type most appropriate for the country,
and the potential efficiencies that can be achieved?
We examined soil data at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences gives the percentage of
all soils we carry, analyzing its ability to yield of corn, soybean and wheat.
If grain-producing land, or livestock production fields to have a positive, why they
decide to sell it?
Rarely a farmer bought existing properties. Generally we are buying agricultural land of
the widow or other relative who has inherited and has no interest in agriculture, of the
successors, of people who have been adjudicated during the Stroessner dictatorship of
former Rural Welfare Institute (IBR) Institute of Rural Development today (INDERT).
that until now are unproductive, they have acquired bargain prices, and are now offering
to market price, that with our sound advice the investor can buy at undervalued. It is an
generational shift that is occurring and that time is running out agricultural land
ownershipthat this beginning to focus in large enterprises.
What do you think global macroeconomic factors are driving the demand for raw
materials and agricultural land?
There are four global macro events occurring, which led us to invest in farmland
originally and are still driving factors: (1) "demand" for food from the growing middle
class in Asia and emerging markets, (2) the biofuels, (3) the depletion of arable land for
agricultural production, and (4) resurgent inflation .... in this order. Experts in the field
of commodities underestimate the global demand for food and will increase grain
exports South America. The growing middle class in emerging economies want to eat
like Americans as people improve their standard of living, one of the first things they
want to do is improve your diet which means eating more protein. 0.91 It is intended
kilograms of grain to produce 1 kilo of chicken, 1.81 kilograms of grain for every 0.45
pounds of pork and 3.18 kilograms of grain to produce 1 kilo of beef. China is already
the largest consumer of pork and soybeans in the world, it also became a net importer of
corn in May 2008. Moreover, as the dollar weakens against the Chinese yuan, our
exports are cheaper in local currency and Chinese demand will increase our food
What if the ethanol is no longer pushed by the U.S. federal government and is
replaced by natural gas or electricity?
A: Ethanol is just one alternative energy source that is needed to satisfy global demands
for energy expansion. Corn-based ethanol is not the panacea for our energy needs, but
also has positive attributes of the press has focused in recent times. For example,
ethanol produces a byproduct, barley grains, a high protein source and the remaining
animals were used to feed cattle, but rarely included in the economics of ethanol. The
efficiency of corn-based ethanol is improving exponentially as time passes, that is
revealed in a recent study published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology. As time
passes, the technology will allow the addition of cellulosic biofuels made from millet,
corn stalks or other fibrous raw food, but still needed farmland and farmers to plant,
maintain and harvest alternative crops.
How to decide to pay for agricultural land prices?
In general terms Paraguay Farmland Partners SA pay less land per hectare than other
farms in the same areas. This is due to the fact that the properties are often brought to
our attention by our network before they are officially listed with a real estate agent.
Finally, sometimes we buy a large tract of farmland to a lower overall cost compared to
someone who is willing to pay a higher price for a small plot inside this the same, a
concession is granted to the purchaser to large scale through our strategy of integrating
collective investment in capital and shareholder of a SA (Inc.Plc) that has the same
objective for all investors.
Investors are buying Paraguay portfolio fields Farmland Partners.
Investors are buying existing diversified portfolio of Paraguay Farmland Partners SA
properties that currently consisting of over 100,000 ha and sprawling with each new
investor and each offer received.
What is the objective universe invertible in the land? It's just the largest lands an
appropriate setting for this type of portfolio?
The objective universe consists of millions of hectares of primordial farmland in
Paraguay. We continue our acquisition strategy, which is buying with values ranging
from 100 ha farms more than 1,000 ha. The attractive land acquisition opportunities are
not limited only to larger farms. We see no problem of capacity in terms of the potential
agricultural investments or acquisitions. Our relationships and reputation building and
habilitation in the Paraguayan Chaco and partners allows us to gain access to a growing
number undervalued the best offers for buying opportunities farmland.
Can you explain what happens in tax matters, if the value of assets wise increases
each year, but no withdrawals?
Investors are not exposed directly to the treasury, since they incorporate the SA (Inc.
Plc) and this face as a legal entity tax liability if the land use is affected by the
IMAGRO (income tax farming) by use of capital, labor and land, and if the land is
leased, is taxpayer IRACIS stays Income Tax Industrial and Commercial Activities
Services generally will be income tax liability for a year for the lease, but there are
some things such as depreciation of irrigation equipment and other improvements that

The gains from the appreciation of land value may be taxed only when the property is
sold and this will generally be capital gains in the long term, considering that in
Paraguay the transfer amount is 1.5% of the fiscal value established by the Ministry of
Economy and is the lowest in the region and not to corde market value and is compared
infima normally transfer amounts is undervalued so avoid paying high taxes, attention is
"avoid" is not that to "evade" this because the law provides so. For example:
10,000 hectares in Alto Paraguay (Chaco)
market value of $ 4,000,000
taxable value established by National Registry of the Ministry of Economy U.S. $
Transfer tax is paid over U.S. $ 150,000, because that's what they normally do appear in
the title, but if the investor wants to figure the amount of the market value will pay
about U.S. $ 4,000,000
But here's our grand strategy, as the field stay or buy on behalf of the SA (Inc. Plc), and
the sole object of the SA is the investment in land for subsequent sale, sold 100% of the
shares, and the farmland is transferred including the SA at the hands of new investors,
so our sale will be more competitive in a few decades when it decides to sell, the new
buyers as a society will have available, and we project that by then the ministry of
economy and update its price to the values market, if it will be higher then the amounts
payable by the transfer, and also with the removal and sale of the SA, the initial investor
will put another higher price to the SA for its age, path, name and key, which will be
additional income and amortize their initial outlay.

Can you produce a significant decrease in the value of farmland? What is the
probability that this decrease will occur?
The value of land is directly affected by the amount of income that can be produced on
that land. Currently the supply of soybeans and meat and demand is in favor of farmers,
ranchers and landowners, and foreign demand for food and domestic demand are out of
stock, they will support or apply upward pressure on prices in the coming years.
However, if nothing dramatically alters the balance of supply and demand, which will
impact on land prices. For example, if latent protectionist rhetoric is increased to a point
where international trade is affected materially, then this could cause a disruption in
demand that could lead to a decrease in agricultural land values. But this situation of
low probability and even if it does, a drop seen in mid-1980 is not expected because
farmers are in a much better position economically with low levels of debt.
