Kansas Agricultural Technologies Conference
January 16-17, 2020
The 23rd Annual Kansas Agricultural Technologies Conference will be held January 16-17, 2020 at the Courtyard by Marriott in Junction City, Kansas. This annual event brings hundreds of agricultural producers and industry leaders for a two-day interactive workshop on the use of technology in the ever-changing agriculture industry. Those in attendance at the conference will hear presentations from dynamic speakers on a wide variety of topics dealing with precision agriculture. The two-day event also includes vendor displays, the KARTA Annual Meeting, research presentations from grant recipients, and an interactive evening discussion that is always an attendee favorite.


Conference registration is $325, which includes two days of meals and refreshments and 2020 KARTA membership.

Our conference puts you in front of a targeted group of producers from the State of Kansas that are at the cutting edge of precision agriculture. Not only do you receive ample networking opportunities throughout the jam-packed 2-day event, but can you also receive the opportunity to speak in front of our guests!
NEW this year is the opportunity to sponsor the event and gain similar exposure, even if you can't attend as a vendor.

I always look forward to this event. It's stimulating, enlightening, and a good reminder of WHY I got into precision ag.



The Thursday night session is always my favorite. It's unlike any conference I've ever been to, and I go to a LOT of meetings!



Being a part of KARTA and their conference is important to me, because it supports on-farm research that I can learn from!
