Southern Agricultural Economics Association


We are a professional organization, established in 1968, to serve the agricultural economics profession in the Southern US.   We are made up of faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, and others, interested in applying economic theory and real-world data to issues surrounding the food and fiber sector of the economy including economic development throughout the region.

Our primary way to achieve our goals is through the publication of the Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, published by Cambridge University Press, and our annual meeting held in cities across the Southern US in conjunction with the Southern Association of Agricultural Scientists.  Over 400 agricultural economists gather each year to present scholarly papers, participate in organized symposiums, present awards, and other academic activities to enhance the agricultural economics profession. A highlight of the Annual Meeting is the undergrad Quiz Bowl competition, featuring over 100 students from around the country.

Information on the SAEA, including membership and annual meeting details can be found on this site.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
