In a world of increasing globalisation and increasing fundamental issues facing food and fibre security, people with agribusiness skills are in high demand. Agribusiness is the term given to industries dealing with the inputs and outputs of agricultural production and services. It includes all business activities involved in the production, processing and distribution of food and fibre products. Successful Agribusiness managers are those who set clear objectives, take time to plan, lead their people and manage priorities which change as the situation changes, and then evaluate how well their plan has worked to achieve their goals.
