Agribusiness Friendliness Index

The Agribusiness Friendliness Index represents an attempt to quantify the various factors that influence the business climate for agribusinesses in each state. The index is based on 38 different variables, representing regulatory policy, tax policy, government efficiency, impact of key government services, and the overall state business climate. The overall index is subdivided into four separate indices: Agricultural Inputs (such as fertilizer, chemicals and equipment); Crop, Fruit and Vegetable Production; Meat and Livestock Products; and First Level Agricultural Processing (such as meat slaughter, milk processing and milling).
