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.
