IA Announces Smart Irrigation Month 2017

 
Smart Irrigation Month serves as the showcase month to promote the social, economic and environmental benefits of efficient irrigation technologies, products and services in irrigation.

The Irrigation Association, for the 13th year in a row, is celebrating Smart Irrigation Month this July. New this year is Irrigation Technology Tuesday, on July 11. The second Tuesday in July serves as the kick-off day, and a day to celebrate all that efficient irrigation has to offer. 

"With July as a top water-using month throughout much of the United States, we are excited to join with our members and partnering organizations to celebrate July as Smart Irrigation Month," IA CEO Deborah Hamlin, CAE, FASAE, said. "Kicking off with the new Technology Tuesday, I am excited to see all our industry has to offer to communicate the message of promoting efficient irrigation." 

As part of the month-long event, the IA will release an advocacy package for federal lawmakers, tools for the irrigation industry to engage with the press and the public, and several other surprise announcements. Keep up with the latest news by following the IA on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, and use #smartirrigationmonth. 

"We hope this Smart Irrigation Month will be the biggest and best ever," John Farner, IA government and public affairs director said. "With our committed members and partner organizations, the opportunities for Smart Irrigation Month are endless. Let the countdown to Technology Tuesday begin!"
