The generosity of our sponsors enhances our conference, by helping us present a quality event at a cost which makes it accessible to everyone wanting to achieve success in the industry. Returning sponsors have helped us grow stronger. We invite you to become a sponsor for our 23nd annual conference


At the 2018 conference there will be opportunities for the industry to take part in discussion on a number of key issues for the development of irrigation in our province.

  1. Panel discussion on financing major water projects in particular irrigation in Saskatchewan
  2. Update on the status of changes to Saskatchewan Irrigation Act
  3. Programming for Irrigators
  4. Progress on SIPA and ICDC forming one entity


Once again we will have a trade show showcasing the irrigation industry with companies that have supported the conference for over 20 years and some displays new to Saskatchewan.  ICDC will summarize their 2018 research program.  Our 2018 conference should be of interest to all irrigators, potential irrigators and stakeholder groups with an interest in the development of the industry in Saskatchewan. This is your chance to give the board your input. Check for updates to the agenda at www.irrigationsaskatchewan.com.
