By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Agricultural Products industry with the highest future earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (next fiscal year estimated vs. current fiscal year estimated) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Limoneira Co ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 21.3%. Fresh Del Monte is next with a future earnings growth of 15.0%. Darling Ingredie ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 12.2%.

Ingredion Inc follows with a future earnings growth of 7.3%, and Archer-Daniels rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 5.6%.
