Agribusiness includes the three sectors of the United States' Food and Fiber System - the input supply industries; agricultural production firms: and firms involved in the processing, manufacturing, and distributing of food products. Corporations such as John Deere, Dekalb, Elanco, and Standard Oil manufacture and sell input products to farmers and ranchers. Farms and ranches have become larger and more specialized even though they remain almost totally under the ownership of individuals rather than large corporations. The third sector of agribusiness includes firms such as Cargill, Central Soya, Sunkist Growers, Kellogg's, Anheuser-Busch, Safeway, Southland (7-11), and McDonald's.
