Margins for many businesses are under pressure after a number of record harvests meaning businesses are assessing their margins and strategies closely. At primary production level, substantial amounts of institutional capital are being deployed into farmland and operational agribusinesses in some geographies, changing the landscape in agribusiness investing.  The focus of the tech sector on agribusiness has led to an explosion in the number of “ag-tech” start-ups over the last three years.
