Economic Sectors and International Development

Using poverty rate as a measure of development, students select countries five at a time to compare how resources are allocated to three economic sectors (agriculture, industrial, service). After making comparisons, students will identify patterns in which sector is emphasized by the wealthiest countries, and will look for patterns in the geographic distribution of countries.

This appears to be an excellent activity for demonstrating many relationships between a nation's agriculture sector and poverty rate.
