About Us

We are a non-government organisation (NGO) in Malaysia to promote the study of science within the context of agriculture and to champion environmental stewardship. Inaugurated on April 2, 1971 with 26 founding members, we have since grown into a full-fledged professional entity, having a membership of over 600. Our members include professionals working in both the public and private sectors, within and outside Malaysia.
