Irrigation and water technology seminars will be a new addition to the 2006 World Ag Expo, located in the first-ever Irrigation Center, Feb. 14-16.

The Irrigation Center will be located just south of Pavilions A and B at the World Ag Expo, on the International Agri-Center show grounds in Tulare, Calif. The Center will be conveniently near the Water and Irrigation specific exhibitors in Pavilion B.

“Water technologies and irrigation are a top concern for many visitors attending World Ag Expo,” said 2006 World Ag Expo Chairman, Erin Ferguson. “In California's Central Valley, it is a number issue facing agriculture, and we felt it was time to focus on this issue at our show, providing a location for seminars on the latest water and irrigation news.”

Dave Zoldoske and Dan Clawson of the International Center for Water Technologies at California State University, Fresno, are coordinating the Irrigation Center and the seminar presentations, along with the support of the California Irrigation Association.
