Demand for food, fuel and fiber and the need for healthy green environments continues to grow as the world’s population expands. Water is essential to meet these global demands and is increasingly recognized as a finite resource. Efficient irrigation products and practices can help us responsibly meet these needs, but a skilled hand is needed.
The Irrigation Foundation is committed to attracting people to careers in irrigation and dedicates approximately 25 percent of its expenses to career awareness and recruitment. The Foundation’s most visible recruitment tool is the Irrigation Career Link, an online job board.
