Agriculture Stocks Performance of 2019

Updated Apr 18, 2019
The human race survived during the earlier era by hunting and consuming meat as it offered a quick and readymade food supply. (See also, All Meat Stocks.)
However, as the humans started to go for a settled life instead of being nomads, they turned to agriculture as it provided long term food supply following lengthy efforts in cultivation. Today, agriculture is one of the largest sectors which not only employs a big chunk of a nation's population directly or indirectly, but also contributes to the nation's economic output. Agriculture related businesses are involved in a variety of activities. They include simply growing crops and plants, developing land parcels of agriculture, raising cattle and growing a wide variety of feed as well as fuel crops. There are other additional businesses that support agriculture directly or indirectly which include the agriculture chemicals companies, tractor and farm manufacturing companies, storage and transportation companies dedicated to agri-produce, and those which are doing research and development for new-age agriculture enhancement initiatives, in biotech, crop and seed development.
Hundreds of such companies are listed on the various stock exchanges in the U.S. and across the globe which makes it easier for investors to take a trading position or invest their money for long-term in the stocks of such agriculture companies.
