About ESA

Presentation/scope

The European Society for Agronomy (ESA) is a scientific society created in 1990 with the aim of promoting the science of Agronomy and its use in agriculture and rural development across Europe.

Further to the decisions taken at the ESA General Assembly in Edinburgh and to the member’s vote held in January and February 2017 of the dissolution of the ESA association and the continuation of the ESA as a scientific network  has been agreed. Since the 1st of September 2018, the European Society for Agronomy (ESA) has now become a scientific network without any fees to pay and no more administrative secretariat and budget to manage.

The objectives of the scientific network are to initiate a Congress of the ESA every second year and to promote the exchange of scientific and practical experience between experts in agronomy. The network is coordinated by a steering committee.
