Rastaban Agricultural is one of the Lyran Commonwealth's major exporters. They are the owners of over five trillion acres across five worlds that specialize in the production of high-yield, quick-growing grains.

Strangely enough, the largest customer for Rastaban's grains is the Draconis Combine. As House Kurita often fails to produce enough food to feed it's population, they have their agents purchase Commonwealth grain through third parties. The government of the Lyran Commonwealth supports this activity and encourages Rastaban to seek more business within the Combine.[4]

The company's homeworld, Rastaban, was lost to Clan Wolf during the Clan Invasion. Despite this, the company has continued to do well by using a new headquarters on Porrima. They also introduced a new type of grain that grows quickly and resists spoilage during the longest trips. With the thaw in relations after the Clan Invasion and Jihad Rastaban Agricultural increased its operations in the Draconis Combine. They also began working on developing contacts in the various Clan Occupation Zones.[3]


Rastaban Agricultural has an manufacturing center on the following planet:
