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.

Prof @SherylHendriks @AgEconUP1 leading the way as @AEASA_LEVSA first female president from 2012 to 2013. May our female agricultural economists continue to lead the agricultural sector in the next 60 years.

Our very own "friend of the farmer" and 2005 to 2007 AEASA president @DrMNMakhura. What an inspiration to so many of us in the agricultural space. Let's strengthen AEASA's provincial footprint again - get in touch and let's collaborate on what matters!

A message from Prof Johann Kirsten, AEASA president during 2002 and 2003, and current editor of our Agrekon journal.
Join us as we continue this trip down memory lane over the next few months and listen to the wise words of those Ag Economists that came before us.
