Important issues facing the industry will be front and center at this year’s Irrigation Show.

Drought is a hot topic across the country, even for those not living in an area affected by the problem.

It will also be a much-discussed topic at the Irrigation Association show taking place in Long Beach, Calif., Nov. 9-13. This year’s show will feature industry leaders discussing water use during drought at IA’s Drought Summit. Breakout sessions will address the West’s water shortage, groundwater sustainability and infrastructure challenges. A panel of experts will debate the irrigation industry’s role in finding long-term solutions for drought in the United States and around the world.

The event will also feature a research symposium, co-sponsored by the American Society of Agricultural & Biological Engineers. The 2015 Irrigation Symposium will include a poster session on the show floor and more than 60 sessions on evapotranspiration, ground-based and remote sensing, deficit irrigation, microirrigation, irrigation scheduling and more.

Along with a trade show and networking events, the event will also include classes and irrigation seminars for members of the agricultural, landscape and golf course irrigation industries.

The show’s general session will feature famed artist and activist Robert Wyland who will speak on environmental awareness and conservation. Through community and education events across the globe, the non-profit Wyland Foundation has turned more than 1 million kids into passionate advocates for the world’s oceans and marine life.
