Association for the Advancement of Industrial Crops

ANNOUNCEMENT: This year’s meeting will be in hybrid mode. This will permit all participants, both those able to travel to Italy (Bologna) to attend the in-person meeting, and those who will not be able to travel to follow the meeting and interact online.

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).
