Commercial Farming

Commercial agriculture, or otherwise known as agribusiness, is a cropping method in which crops are raised and livestock are raised in order to sell the products on the market in order to make money. In this type of agriculture, a lot of capital is invested and large-scale crops are grown in huge farms, using modern technologies, machinery, irrigation methods and chemical fertilizers. The basic characteristic of commercial agriculture is that high doses of modern inputs are used for higher productivity, such as high yielding varieties, fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides, weed killers, and so on. In commercial agriculture, crops that are in high demand, i.e., crops that need to be exported to other countries or are used as raw materials in industries are produced mainly. In addition, the extent of agricultural marketing differs from region to region.
