Irrigation Innovation Consortium
The newly-launched Irrigation Innovation Consortium (IIC) is a way for public-sector researchers and industry partners to co-develop, test, and improve cutting-edge irrigation innovations, equipment, technology, and decision and information systems. Because every drop of water counts, consortium members will work together to get these new technologies into the hands of producers.
The IIC is funded by a $5 million grant from the Foundation of Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR), with matching funding from partners, for a total of $10 million.
Along with Kansas State Research and Extension, the Consortium will have four initial university partners and five additional partners from industry and other national organizations.
