The vast canvas of agriculture covers plants, animals, insects, and micro-organisms, each covering numerous species and subspecies. It covers all forms of life and matter. This biomass is created by the sun's energy, and is primarily composed of three primary elements - carbon (C), Oxygen (O), and Hydrogen (H). Through various physical and chemical processes the organic matter could be converted into various products - sugarcane into sugar, alcohol, paper, acetic acid, and so on. Thus processing of agricultural raw materials becomes an integral part of agriculture when a country like India is fast moving from an agrarian to an industrial economy. Thus, agriculture seen in its wider perspective provides tremendous opportunities for commercial and industrial activities.
