A commodity is good that is generally a primary good used in manufacturing such as timber, cotton, wool and copper.

Commodity revolves around an agricultural good produced and sold in bulk. Commodities selected for support by the USDA include corn, wheat, cotton, rice, and soybeans. Livestock, dairy, fruits and vegetables are left out. So farmers who want to grow other crops must operate at an economic disadvantage. Unfortunately, the designated commodities tend to be row crops that require the greatest soil disturbance and use of chemical inputs, leading to vast environmental degradation.
