“Agribusiness include not only that productive piece of land but also the people and firms that provide the inputs (i.e. Seed, chemicals, credit etc.), process the output (I.e. Milk, grain, meat etc.), manufacture the food products (i.e. ice cream, bread, breakfast cereals, etc.), and transport and sell the food products to consumers (i.e. restaurants, supermarkets etc.). Agribusiness involves three sectors. First is input sector: It deals with the supply of inputs required by the farmers for raising crops, livestock and other allied enterprises. These include seeds, fertilizers, chemicals, machinery and fuel. Second is farm sector; It aims at producing crops, livestock and other products, and third is product sector; It deals with various aspects like storage, processing and marketing the finished products so as to meet the dynamic needs of consumers. Therefore, Agribusiness is sum total of all operations or activities involved in the business of production and marketing of farm supplies and farm products for achieving the targeted objectives. Agribusiness deals with agricultural sector and also with the portion of industrial sector, which is the major source of farm inputs like fertilizers, pesticides, machines, processing and post-harvest technologies. It suggests and directs the government and private sectors for development of sub sectors and contributes a good part of the national economy.”--Back cover
