It is both. Horticulture is a sub set of agriculture, and agriculture is an industry. Other sub sets include Aquaculture, Forestry, Dairy production, Beef production, etc. The word 'horticulture' means literally 'garden agriculture'. It is also a thriving industry. Generally, in terms of classifying it, it is put with agriculture.
