The Agri­cul­tur­al and Applied Eco­nom­ics Asso­ci­a­tion (AAEA) is a not-for-prof­it asso­ci­a­tion ser­vic­ing the pro­fes­sion­al inter­ests of mem­bers work­ing in agri­cul­tur­al and broad­ly relat­ed fields of applied economics.

Mem­bers of the AAEA are employed by aca­d­e­m­ic or gov­ern­ment insti­tu­tions, as well as in indus­try and not-for-prof­it orga­ni­za­tions, and engage in a vari­ety of teach­ing, research, and extension/​outreach activ­i­ties. Their work address­es a broad range of top­ics such as the eco­nom­ics of agri­cul­ture, inter­na­tion­al and rur­al devel­op­ment, resources and envi­ron­ment, food and con­sumer issues, and agribusi­ness.
