A rapidly changing, international, high-technology, consumer-oriented world is the environment in which today#xE2;#xAC;"s food and agribusiness managers operate. That challenging environment has been further complicated by increased volatility in input and commodity prices, increased challenges in obtaining borrowed funds, and reduced profit margins. This fourth edition of Agribusiness Management will be written to better prepare students and managers for a successful career in this exciting, challenging and dynamic industry. The basic objective of the text is to provide students and managers with a fundamental understanding of the key concepts needed to successfully management businesses, while adding value to farm products and/or providing inputs to production agriculture. Although there are many concepts in the book that apply to farm and production agriculture business management, the text is focused on the food and input supply sectors of the food production and marketing system.
