Association for the Advancement of Industrial Crops
Industrial crops are utilized for non-food and non-feed applications. These plants provide raw materials and products such as energy, starch, oils, fibers and rubber that are used in different industries.
The Association for the Advancement of Industrial Crops is an international, nonprofit educational and scientific organization established to encourage and promote the activities on industrial crops and products.
The AAIC was reincorporated in 1988 from the Guayule Rubber Society, with chapters in California (Los Guayuleros) and Arizona (Arizona Guayule Society).
