Nordic association for agricultural science

About us

NJF's objective is to promote agricultural research in the Nordic-Baltic countries. NJF arranges conferences, which facilitate close contacts between scientists, advisors and end-users of knowledge. Our vision is an efficient and sustainable utilization of our agricultural and horticultural resources. Our members are engaged in research, education, extension, administration or other public or private services in the agricultural sector. The sections are NJF's professional bodies, with responsibility for their respective areas.

By being a member of NJF, you are entitled to attend our conferences, workshops and other actitivties at reduced price, but above all, you can make valuable contacts with other scientists in your field.

The working language of NJF is English. Direct e-mails and the web are used extensively for information exchange.

NJF's activities are financed through membership fees and income from conferences.

Our members are engaged in research, education, extension, administration or other public or private services in the agricultural sector.
