Demand for crop support services closely follows demand for crop production. Fortunately for the industry, US farmers have benefited from increased consumption and biofuel production in recent years, as well as a shortage in global supplies following adverse farming conditions in other countries. Increasing automation in the agriculture sector will also boost demand for outsourced services, as many farmers may not have the capital required to perform some tasks.
Establishments in this industry provide support activities for growing crops. Some examples of these support activities include cotton ginning, soil treatment, crop planting and harvesting. Almost all US farmers, including cotton, wheat, corn and fruit growers, purchase from this industry at some level.
