Primary, secondary and tertiary agricultural goods

Primary agricultural goods are untreated products which come directly from nature or from the primary sector. Secondary agricultural goods are treated products and preparations from primary agricultural goods. Together, these form the main definition of agricultural goods. Tertiary agricultural goods are agriculture-related goods which are used in the various farming sectors. They are not included in the main definition. See paragraph 2.9 of the Internationalisation Monitor on ‘Agribusiness’ for a comprehensive overview of the goods listed under the definitions of primary, secondary and tertiary agricultural goods.
