This unit discusses the importance of business planning for
agricultural firms—from input suppliers to producers to processors—and
describes the steps required to prepare a thorough business plan. The
general process of business planning is the same for each type of firm.
However, each may have differing individual aspects that affect its
plan’s contents. Regardless, we present a recommended format that should
be useful for all types of agricultural firms as they develop written
business plans. We use examples from the wide variety of agribusinesses
to provide a broad context to the general theme of business planning.
