Agribusiness Figure one which shows the Over view

            Agribusiness
provides inputs to the production agriculturist (farmer), and the production
agricultural produce food, fiber and by products. Input agribusinesses provide
farmers with supplies and equipment needed to produce and protect their crops.
Many provide services to such as credit, insurance and information. The output
is taken by output agribusiness firms that process, market, and distribute the
agricultural products (see Figure 1).

 

             

Discussion

            This
paper aims to let the people that had read/ listen during the discussion that
had been done by the group 1 about the topic Growth and Development of
Agribusiness to understand where it started and how agribusiness come to engage
with agriculture.

            Figure
one which shows the Over view of the Agribusiness system, illustrates how
agriculture is being merge with agribusiness. It is merging in a way that the
Agribusiness is the one that helps to provide the Agriculturist (farmers) with
the materials, equipment’s and other stuff needed in farming activities. Also
Agribusiness helps the farmers to disseminate/ sell their products in a way
that it would be beneficial to the farmers and to the consumers buying their
products.

 The Line of Gandhi (2014) that says: “This is
important not only to understand what the origins and causes of agribusiness
growth are, but also the likely direction of future changes”. This very
important because of if we only thinks about today then we cannot predict nor
forecast what will happen to the future demand and whether if we are able to
cope up to the supply and demand gap by the logarithmic increasing population.
The inflation of price must be studied also in order to balance the economy and
for the sake of the people not only for their want but also for their daily
living.

 

The major
drivers can be identified as:

• Scarcity of Land and the Need
to Improve Productivities

–         
This
portion is considered as a major driver since if the their will be enough land
to be utilized in agriculture then there will be enough food to be produce and
at the same time lots of people will have employment.

• Markets, Urbanisation and
Increasing Commercialisation of Agriculture

–         
If
agriculture would be commercialized then lots people will realize the potential
production of good quality products and then agricultural sector will rise.

• Need for Change in Scale and
Reorganisation of Production and Marketing

–         
There
will be variation on the production goods and services on the field of
agriculture and also it will help in restructuring the marketing of countries
economy.

• Economic Liberalisation,
Reducing Government Involvement, Income Growth, WTO and Trade

–         
At
this portion the economist of the country will have its own right to decide on
its own without the involvement of to many government officials, and there will
be an increase in trade like exporting and importing of goods that will lead to
the growth/ increase of income.

• Changing Food Consumption
Pattern and Demand for Quality and Convenience

–         
There
will be a change in the food consumption of the people due to the commercialization
of agriculture and at the same time it will help in the increase in demand by
the people knowing the quality of the products they are consuming.

• Development of the Rural
Economy, Infrastructure, Rural-Urban Migration, and Globalisation

–         
There
will be a change in the rural area of the countries especially those with
agricultural sector on it. The agricultural area in rural portions of the
country will be improved.

• Information and Communication
Technology Revolution.

–         
There
will be an information dissemination all over the country and technological
agriculture will be introduced to the people especially to the farmers.
