The Australasian Grain Science Association (AGSA) provides a forum for Australasian grain scientists, students, nutritionists and others with an interest in grain science, to advance the knowledge and understanding of grain science and the grain industry. It serves individuals in the grain food and allied industries, the agrifood sector, research and education.
AGSA began as a cereal chemists’ learned society in 1951, and met under the umbrella of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) until 2009. It is managed by an executive committee which is democratically elected from, and by, members annually.
Through conferences and other activities, AGSA facilitates exchange of information, networking and communication relevant to the Australian grain industry. Through its awards, AGSA has a long history of recognising outstanding achievement in the grain sciences and allied industries.
