CAAS is dedicated to overcoming a broad range of challenges impacting agricultural development and support of the local rural economy.

Importantly, CAAS promotes sustainable agriculture within and outside China, extending its reach through technology exchange and cooperative research agreements with agricultural research institutions/universities domestically and internationally, and global non-governmental organizations.

CAAS, established in 1957 and headquartered in Beijing, oversees 42 institutes, of which 32 are direct affiliates. The remaining 8 institutes are co-hosted together with local governments or universities. CAAS also incorporates a graduate school and a publishing house. Research and policy work at the academy cover a broad range of topics that have been categorized as eight disciplinary clusters, 134 focused fields, and 309 research focuses.

The eight disciplinary clusters include crop science, horticulture science, animal science, veterinary medicine, agricultural resources and environment, agricultural mechanization and engineering, agro-product quality, safety and processing, and agricultural information and economics.
