Preface
The term agribusiness was introduced by Davis and Goldberg in 1957. It is a generic term for the various businesses involved in food production, including farming and contract farming, seed supply, agrichemicals, farm machinery, wholesale and distribution, processing, marketing, and retail sales. The term agricultural marketing is composed of two words agriculture and marketing. Agriculture is based on activities aimed at the use of natural resources for human welfare. The primary activities are the production of food including growing and or raising crops and livestock. Marketing encompasses a series of activities involved in moving the goods from the point of production to the point of consumption.
