ABSTRACT

In Touch with Industry: ICAF Industry Studies 1997: Agribusiness   [open pdf - 1MB]

This report analyzes the U.S. agribusiness industry, beginning with a general description of the industry and its current condition, followed by an analysis of trends, outlooks, and conclusions related to five major challenges that this industry must carry into the next century: feeding a growing world population, ensuring food safety, leveraging technology, protecting the environment, and defining government's appropriate role. The report closes with recommendations to enhance the industry's already vigorous state. The content reflects recurring themes heard throughout our classroom studies, research, field visits in the United States and Russia, and interviews with government officials and industry representatives.
