The Global Alliance of Independent Agricultural Consultants

GAIAC is a global network of independent agricultural consultants that facilitates the exchange of information, technology, techniques and experiences to further the field of independent agricultural consulting. GAIAC members are equipped to offer timely and pertinent services by accessing a global knowledge base; and in particular to facilitate the development of this industry in countries where independent agricultural consulting is not common.


Who is GAIAC?

Currently we have representation from Australia, Canada, France, UK and USA. Inaugural directors are particularly well placed to represent their own circumstances which includes crop consulting and contract research. Founding members have come together with the vision of advancing the now documented goals of GAIAC. A key component of this is harnessing the input of Agricultural Consultants around the globe who share similar passion for our industry.
