The association plays a key role in educating, training, communications and issues management for the industry in South Australia and has relationships with key other industry and government bodies to ensure that the members’ interests are represented at all times.

The NGISA office is in the Urrbrae agricultural precinct, alongside Urrbrae Agricultural High School and TAFE Urrbrae Campus, which has a focus on agriculture and horticulture.
