Agricultural Economics Association of Georgia
The Agricultural Economics Association of Georgia (AEAG) was established in October 1976 in Athens, Georgia. The aims of the association are as follows:
- To provide opportunities for the professional improvement of people interested in the field of agricultural economics.
- To provide a forum for the discussion of economic problems and issues of mutual interest to people working in agriculture, agribusiness and related fields.
- To recommend solutions to economic problems facing Georgia's agriculture.
Agricultural economics is involved in all sectors of our economy and the opportunities are greater now than ever before. Agriculture and its fundamental role in growth and development has recaptured the public's attention. All too often economic criteria are ignored in public and private decision making. We must be more effective in communicating the relevance of agricultural economics and we must recruit more students and better support agricultural economists if we are to meet the challenges for further applications of agricultural economics to farm, resource, environmental and agribusiness problems.
