Who We Are

The Agricultural Economics Club (AEC) is a student organization for students interested in local, national, and world agricultural issues. The Club provides opportunities for students to gain practical knowledge on various aspects of the U.S. food supply chain. Moreover, the club is directly involved in harvesting, processing, packaging, and marketing the NMSU pecans. These club activities provide ample opportunities for students to gain real world agribusiness management experience. The club membership is open to all students who have a general interest in food and agribusiness related issues.

What We Do

As a club or as individuals we conduct research and discuss current Ag Issues and try to develop a better understanding of the U.S. food industry. We facilitate lively interactions between students and faculty and help students to develop professional networks with prospective employers and other industry professionals. We also represent NMSU through our participation in professional meetings, competitive events, and industry organizations.
