The Agricultural Bureau of South Australia is a not-for-profit organisation run by farmers for farmers. Membership is for everyone associated with or interested in farming, agricultural development and education. The Bureau helps to bridge the gap between scientist and farmer and assists its members in working together on issues of common interest. The Bureau has a proud history in South Australia, serving agriculture since 1888. There are around 80 active branches spread throughout the state, with groups meeting regularly to exchange ideas, discuss farming practices and issues and work on common challenges together.
