International Micro Irrigation Conference

International Micro Irrigation Congress was launched in the year 1971, later re-named as  International Micro Irrigation Conference in 2012. Micro-irrigation is the most efficient method of water application to crops; however, due to its technicalities and complex design, operation and maintenance features, it has not been accepted worldwide at a requisite pace. In order to promote the use of micro-irrigation techniques and encourage advanced ideations and methods, the conference is organized, especially in developed countries. ICID volunteered to organize the event commencing from the 5th International Micro Irrigation Congress held at South Africa in 2000 with the objective of creating awareness among its members about the latest developments in micro irrigation technology to enhance sustainable and efficient crop production. 

The latest 9th International Micro Irrigation Conference was held at Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India in January 2019. The conference was inaugurated by Hon'ble Union  Minister Mr. Nitin Gadkari (Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Shipping and Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, Government of India); presided by Hon'ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra Mr. Devendra Fadnavis, and Hon'ble Union Minister Mr. Radha Mohan Singh (Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India).
