Distinct processes within this sector comprise growing, harvesting, processing and packaging.

The significance of the agricultural sector is reflected in its high share of GDP in most countries, the even greater share of employment, as well as its prioritisation in the development plan, with the total value of agricultural output, has grown markedly over the past decade.

Weighting plays a vital role in the agricultural and farming equipment industry. Whether tracking crop yields, managing livestock and their feed, or shipping raw agricultural products, weighing is critical to successful operations. Other important roles that weight scales play in the farming and agricultural industries include: managing feed ingredients, mixing and preparation of fertilisers, monitoring yields and in the worker remuneration based on productivity.
