Agriculture & Agri Inputs
Agriculture is defined by Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary as “the science, art, or practice of cultivating the soil, producing crops, and raising livestock and in varying degrees the preparation and marketing of the resulting products: Farming.” While the above definition of agriculture is true, contemporary agriculture is also inclusive of other practices and systems that more broadly define what the new agricultural industries represent.
The National Research Council’s definition of agriculture is broader than Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary. The National Research Council defines “agriculture” broadly as to:
…encompass the production of agricultural commodities, including food, fiber, wood products, horticultural crops, and other plant and animals products. The terms also include the financing, processing, marketing, and distribution of agricultural products; farm production supply and service industries; health, nutrition, and food consumption; the use and conservation of land and water resources; development and maintenance of recreational resources; and related economic, sociological, political, environmental, and cultural characteristics of the food and fiber system.
There is a vast array of systems, industries, and people that agriculture touches on a daily basis.
