What is the Agriculture Industry?

Agriculture, known also as husbandry or farming, is the science of cultivating plants, animals, and other life forms for food, fiber, and fuel. The agriculture industry, which includes enterprises engaged in growing crops, raising fish and animals, and logging wood, encompasses farms, dairies, hatcheries, and ranches. Our application review focuses on grain storage, handling, and processing only, leaving Animal Feed Mill applications discussed elsewhere.

The agriculture industry is extremely important globally (including all market segments) and is one of the largest industry groups in the United States. Agricultural industries contributed $1.42 trillion to the U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2022, a 5.5 percent share. The output of America’s farms contributed $223.5 billion of this sum—about 0.9 percent of GDP.
