The agribusiness sector is comprised of interrelated subsectors working in concert to provide goods and services to consumers around the world. With the need to accommodate economic, social, and environmental concerns, organizations and managers in the sector share many of the challenges that exist in other business value chains. This article covers the frameworks agribusiness researchers use to analyze the performance of agribusiness firms and the food and agribusiness value chain. The topics include industry-level analyses, firm strategy analyses, marketing, finance, operations, human capital management, and entrepreneurship and innovation.
