Agribusiness is the coordination of all activities that contribute to the production, processing, marketing, distribution, financing and development of agricultural commodities and resources. This includes food, fiber, wood products, natural resources, horticulture, and other plant and animal products and services. Agribusiness is a high-tech industry that uses satellite systems, computer databases and spreadsheets, biotechnology and many other innovations to increase efficiency and profitability.
Market pressures will continue the long-term trend toward consolidation into fewer and larger farms and ranches over the next decade. Good opportunities will continue for people in agribusiness who support the production of agricultural commodities.
