Arizona Agricultural Institute
The Arizona Agriculture Institute (formerly Summer Ag Institute) is a unique opportunity for Arizona school teachers of all levels to gain valuable knowledge of Arizona's agriculture community.
The event is a coordinated effort between Arizona’s agriculture education groups, including the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension and Maricopa Agriculture Center, Arizona Beef Council, Arizona Farm Bureau Federation, Arizona Milk Producers, Arizona State Cowbelles, and the Arizona Departments of Education and Agriculture. Support and funding is provided by the Arizona Foundation for Agriculture Literacy.
The immersive experience features visits to most segments of agriculture in Arizona, including cattle and beef, farming, milk and dairy, pollinators, conservation and stewardship, technology in agriculture, and much more.
