Agricultural activity is the management by an enterprise of the biological transformation of biological assets

       for sale,
       into agricultural produce, or
       into additional biological assets

                                   Capability + Management + Measurement               of change
  Does NOT include, e.g. open ocean fishing, greyhounds, horses etc held for racing, animals in zoo, viruses/blood cells for research

Agricultural produce is the harvested product of the enterprise´s biological assets.

A biological asset is a living animal or plant.

Biological transformation comprises the processes of growth, degeneration, production, and procreation that cause qualitative or
quantitative changes in a biological asset.

A group of biological assets is an aggregation of similar living animals or plants.

Harvest is the detachment of produce from a biological asset or the cessation of a biological asset´s life processes.

                                                   Biological Asset or Agricultural Produce == Intended Use
