The Agricultural Economics Association of South Africa (AEASA) is the professional organisation of Agricultural Economists in South Africa. It was established in 1961 and held its first annual conference in 1962. AEASA has positioned itself strategically for the 21st century to enable it to be relevant for all agricultural economists, thereby assisting them to serve their communities. The shared vision is that AEASA’s products and services should support all agricultural economists active in the industry irrespective of race, language, gender, career choice and educational level.
