Agro-based industries, Agro-linked industries, Agro-industries


This study aims to reveal information about the developments in the agro-industry sector. In the research, statistical information about the development of Agro-Industry enterprises and previous studies on the subject were used. agro-industries; industries based on agriculture (the branch of industry that improves the quality and quantity of agricultural products by using them as raw materials and undergoing different processes) and industries related to agriculture (the branch of industry that provides raw materials/inputs to agriculture). The development of agro-industries has an important role in matters such as increasing the usage period of agricultural production by processing, creating added value and contributing to the development of exports. The developments in the industry are reflected in every part of agriculture. As a result of these advances, chemical fertilizers, plant and animal protection, better feed and additives, improved new machine types, highly productive plant varieties, and vegetable raw materials are processed to produce long-lasting and value-added products. In addition, the ever-evolving and changing activities also include improvements in the managerial skills of farmers, which is a factor that cannot be measured. It is the developments in the agricultural sector, which is the first stage of the industrialization process in Western Europe, especially in France, England, and Germany, in the formation of industrial societies. It is known that with the acceleration of the industrialization process in Türkiye, agriculture-based industries were supported in various ways, especially in the 1940s. Today, the agriculture-based industry has created agro-industries in which the private sector also operates, apart from the state institutions established by the state to support more agricultural producers. The fertilizer industry in the agriculture-related industry in Türkiye received priority and support throughout the planned periods. On the other hand, machine power entered Turkish agriculture with the plows produced by the factories in England and Germany in the Balkan War and the years after this war. Agro-Industry enterprises in Türkiye showed an increase of 40.07% between 2010 and 2019 years. Thus, the Agro-Industry production value in Türkiye has increased continuously over the years. The total production value of agro-industries has increased by 483.69% from 2010 to 2019. All these developments have enabled the transformation of agricultural productions into foodstuffs beneficial to society and the development of other industries. This change is seen in this study.
