Irrigation Expo draws near


irrigation expoocusing on all things irrigation, the WTC Irrigation Expo is a day not to be missed.

Farmers with an interest in the latest water saving initiatives will have already marked this years Water Technology Cluster (WTC) Irrigation Expo May 18-19, as a date not to be missed.
And as it draws nears, chairperson of the WTC Wendy Buck can hardly contain her excitement.
"The expo is jam packed with the latest information on irrigation," Wendy said.
"We have over 90 exhibitors who will be showcasing their products and water saving ideas from drip irrigation to pivots, pipe and risers, pumps, automation, soil moisture monitors and everything in between.
"There has never been a more important time for farmers to access the most up to date irrigation information with programs like the On Farm Irrigation Efficiency Program or the Northern Victoria Irrigation Renewal Project underway.
All the latest information can be found here at the expo, alongside government departments who are also well represented.
Wendy said the expo committee had received a lot of positive feedback from exhibitors last year and many had rebooked sites again this year.
Service manager for ThinkWater Rick Nathan said the expo targeted the water industry well, while  Charles Du Bourg from IK Caldwell said irrigation was a hot topic that got lost amongst the larger field days, at the expo it is the main focus.
Gunbower dairy farmers Matt and Vicki McGillivray were pleasantly surprised by what they found while wandering around the expo site last year,
"We were in the process of working on our submission for the On Farm Irrigation Efficiency grant and we were able to look at all the things we needed including pumps and pipes, with the convenience of it all being located in one spot," Vicki said.
There was a lot of up to date information available and because irrigation is such an important part of our business, everything was directly relevant to us.
 This year a range of guest speakers will be talking on many different water saving topics including Ian Gibb from Farmanco who will be looking at the economic considerations of irrigation upgrades.
The expo will be held at the Echuca Racecourse. Gates open from 10am-4pm, entry is free and there is plenty of parking available.
