Simply put, the field of agribusiness has everything from farming to the marketing of agricultural products. In developing countries like India, agribusiness can be divided into four parts - investment, production, processing, and marketing. In India, about 20 to 30 percent of food items and about 30 percent of fruits and vegetables are wasted every year due to flood, insect infection and storage facilities.
