Q: What is the Agriculture Industry?
A: Agriculture, known also as husbandry or farming, is the science of cultivating plants, animals, and other life forms for food, fiber, and fuel. The agricultural industry, which includes enterprises engaged in growing crops, raising fish and animals, and logging wood, encompasses farms, dairies, hatcheries, and ranches.
The agriculture industry includes feed (apps not included herein), grain storage, grain processing and seed processing, some of these we separate into their own respective industry segments because of their respective overall size and importance, example: Feed, Seed, etc. In the USA the agriculture, and related industries such as food, is one of the largest in the country. Agriculture, food, and related industries contributed $992 billion to U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) in 2015, a 5.5-percent share. The output of America’s farms contributed $136.7 billion of this sum—about 1 percent of GDP.
