With increasing production of agricultural-based products, new options for careers are coming out in this area. New employment opportunities have arisen in the field of agriculture.

The companies, who do business transactions with farmers, have entered the field of agriculture. Whether these transactions were done in the form of a product or service. Similarly, farming seeds, pesticides, and distribution, loans for farming, agricultural insurance, preservation and processing of agricultural products are also involved in agribusiness. 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. In this way, the demand for agribusiness management has increased to promote more yield and hence, there are new options for professionals in the management field.
