Agriculture

Opportunities for innovation in agriculture may provide new chances for growth.  Some of these opportunities are variations of traditional product lines, such as the increasing market for specialty and locally produced foods and beverages for nich markets. Others are at the cutting edge of biotechnology as in biofuels and bioplastics.
