Welcome to the:

International Farm Management Association

On this website you can find out all about the IFMA organisation, its highly respected international congresses, and its publications.

The organisation is open to all who have an interest in agriculture and related rural activities, and their management. The IFMA will be of particular interest to those who have an interest in agricultures in other parts of the world than their own. Sharing knowledge, experience and innovative ideas is a primary objective of the Association.

You can also make contact with other associated organisations around the world and find out about their activities.
