Agribusiness Value Chain - INPUTS

The input sector spans a wide variety of product segments which can be seen as setting the genetic potential of crops and animals: providing them with nutrition; protecting them against diseases, pests and weeds; improving the efficiency with which they can be cultivated and harvested; and providing services to farmers. In general, this stage of the value chain has fared well over recent years, benefiting from the high level of crop prices and farmer incomes, and taking advantage of the new opportunities afforded by technology. Many sectors invest significantly in R&D; seeds/biotech is one of the most R&D-intensive sectors. There is increasing R&D collaboration between the private and public sectors, driven by the high propriety being accorded to food security issues. Technology is leading to a blurring of the boundaries between some sectors - for example there is increasing integration of crop protection and seeds, driven partly by advances in biotechnology - and a tendency to take an increasingly holistic and 'systems' view of crop production. Nearly all sectors have been increasing their engagement with emerging markets which are growing in importance as a percentage of sales.
