Agribusiness

agriculture-related industry

Agribusiness (also called bio-business[1][2] or bio-enterprise) refers to the enterprises, the industry, the system, and the field of study in agriculture[3] and bio-economy.[4]

The first goal of agribusiness is to maximize profit the needs of consumers for products related to natural resources such as biotechnology, farms, food, forestry, fisheries, fuel, and fiber — usually with the exclusion of non-renewable resources such as mining.[5][6]
