The agricultural crop industry includes around 1.3 million farms with harvested cropland operating on 300 million harvested acres, with combined annual revenue of $175 billion. Major companies include produce farms owned by Dole Food Company and Fresh Del Monte Produce, and grain farms owned by Monsanto, Syngenta, and DuPont. As a whole, the industry is fragmented: 10 percent of companies account for one-third of revenue. Vegetable and melon farms are more concentrated, with the top 10 percent of companies representing two-thirds of industry revenue.
