Estonian Academic Agricultural Society
Estonian Academic Agricultural Society in 1920-1945
The AAS was established in 1920 in Tartu Univesity (reopened in 1919). Members of the Society were the students (up to 449 in 1928) as well as the lecturers of the Faculty of Agronomy. The objective of the extracurricular activities of the AAS was to prepare the students for their future profession. Publishing activities were of great importance – the Society’s journal (“Agronoomia”) was published and manuals were compiled. The AAS was liquidated by Soviet power in 1940.
