BUAS was originally created after an s initial meeting of landowners from both sides of the Tweed, who met at the Cross Keys Hotel in Kelso in January 1813.
Chairman of the BUAS Bicentenary Committee, Gareth Baird, said; "In the last 200 years, the BUAS has witnessed huge changes in the way food is produced and the way the countryside is managed.
BUAS is also recognising the vital role of education this year by creating a Bicentenary Fund, which will provide bursaries, awards and grants to support local young people working in the countryside.
BUAS has been raising cash for the fund since last year with a memorial avenue of 20 trees - one to mark each decade of the society - to be planted at the Springwood Park showground in Kelso.
All in all, 2013 is a year of major anniversaries for BUAS.
BUAS is also introducing a series of bursaries for young people working in the rural economy in north Northumberland and the Borders and will be working with schools and colleges in the run-up to the show.
Today, BUAS has more than 1,000 members and a permanent home at Kelso's Springwood Park, which the organisation bought in 1953.
