AFA Technology Institute

The AFA Technology Institute brings talented college men and women together for a three-day program. Students, who are selected through a competitive application process, have expressed a specific interest in agriculture technology. The itinerary will provide interaction between students and technology sector leaders; expose students to area businesses; and include discussion and training to enhance student career preparation.


AFA recognizes the diversity of technology, and in an effort to expose young leaders to numerous aspects of the sector, AFA will hold this Institute at the Commodity Classic. This year’s Institute will follow the Commodity Classic to San Antonio, Texas.
